Sen. Mark Warner on the need for a clear strategy to destroy ISIL
U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) released this statement today calling on the Obama administration to articulate a political and military strategy to eliminate the threats posed by ISIL terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria:
“We are repulsed yet again by the barbaric tactics of the terrorist group ISIL, and our thoughts today are with the families of American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley.
“I urge the Administration to come to Congress with a clear strategy and political and military options for eliminating the ISIL threat. The United States should not take any military options off the table, because stopping ISIL is in the national security and foreign policy interests of the U.S. and our European allies. We need to see the Iraqis, other partners across the region, and our European allies in NATO stand up and stand together against the ISIL threat.”
