Former New York Gov. George Pataki (R) sounded off on "The Real Story" today about what he thinks the U.S. strategy against ISIS should be. 

"First of all, we have to acknowledge that Islamic terror is an enemy of the United States," he said. "Call it by it's name, whether it's ISIS, or al Qaeda, or Boko Haram. The second thing we have to do is attack them there." 

"We know that they are planning, recruiting, training and organizing to attack the United States here. We've got to attack them there, before they have the chance to do it again."

Pataki noted that he was governor of New York when the Sept. 11 attacks happened. 

"I saw the consequences of inaction back then," he remarked. "I don't want to see that again. If it takes boots on the ground for a limited period of time to destroy ISIS, they must be destroyed there, before they attack us here."

He added that Obama "should call terror, Islamic terror."  

"ISIS is at war with the United States, with Jordan, with any civilized nation," Pataki said. "They are the most barbaric terrorists to come along in along time."
