Kerry: The Threat of ISIS Demands a Global Coalition
As the debate rages about how to best deal with the threat posed by ISIS, President Obama is under fire for his comment that "we don't have a strategy" for confronting the terror group in Syria.
Meanwhile, in an op-ed piece for The New York Times, Secretary of State John Kerry wrote that the global threat of ISIS demands a global coalition.
"With a united response led by the United States and the broadest possible coalition of nations, the cancer of ISIS will not be allowed to spread to other countries," Kerry wrote. "The world can confront this scourge, and ultimately defeat it. ISIS is odious, but not omnipotent."
Molly Henneberg reported on America's News Headquarters that critics of the Obama administration want to hear more from the president himself, particularly a well-formed military strategy.
Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote in their own New York Times op-ed, "Ultimately, ISIS is a military force, and it must be confronted militarily. Mr. Obama has begun to take military actions against ISIS in Iraq, but they have been tactical and reactive half-measures. Continuing to confront ISIS in Iraq, but not in Syria, would be fighting with one hand tied behind our back. We need a military plan to defeat ISIS, wherever it is."
