Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared at a conference sponsored by the think tank Canada 2020. The focus of her speech was largely on foreign issues, particularly the terrorist groups Boko Haram and ISIL. Clinton expressed her concern over ISIL and its growing influence saying, “I think the evidence is convincing, at least to me, that this is a group that will try to pick up where Al Qaeda in Afghanistan left off. What we were able to do, at great cost, to ferret out and decapitate the leadership of Al Qaeda, severely undermined their capacity as an organization.” Clinton expressed her support for military action to stop the group from expanding its territory and spreading its tactics.
Video from the event is currently unavailable and will be posted when/if available.
