Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sounded off on "The Real Story" today about President Obama stating "that it's not in the country's best interest to defeat ISIL." 

"Well, here's what I would tell the president," Graham said to Gretchen Carlson. "You don't apparently realize what they intend to do to us. Go tell that to the family of the young lady in Phoenix they're not a threat to us and our way of life."

"They intend to bend every Muslim to their will, destroy the state of Israel, kill every Christian they can get their hands on," he added. "They've got 4,000 foreign fighters with western passports."

Graham told Carlson that ISIL intends to hit the country and that the leader of ISIL threatened New York after spending time in an American military prison in Iraq.

The senator remarked that Obama acts like this isn't America's war to fight and that no one believes he's going to destroy the terrorist organization.   

"He's trying to be cute and fuzzy, giving himself a leeway here at home," Graham stated. "He's crystal clear. ISIL knows that this strategy will not destroy them...We need a commander-in-chief who will articulate why it's in our national security interest to destroy ISIL, not just the region." 

"He's the equivocator-in-chief, we need a commander-in-chief," he added.
