Clinton Calls for Tougher Efforts Against ISIS

On Thursday, Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined her plans to defeat ISIS and combat global terrorism. Clinton outlined her plan in a speech during an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations (above), she made it clear that the United States would not back down or allow fear to soften our resolve. She called for the United States to increase its air strikes against ISIS. Following the attacks in Paris and the bombing of a Russian airliner, both of which ISIS has claimed responsibility, the Russian and French militaries have both increased air strikes. In addition to increased air strikes, she called for US Special Forces to train regional forces. Clinton also called for pressuring the governments of Iraq and Turkey to set aside their differences and unite in the fight against ISIS. For details of Clinton’s plan, watch the speech above or read a full transcript on The Briefing.
