Every American recognizes that the barbaric acts of terrorism carried out by ISIS are an assault on democracy, our freedoms and our way of life. We also know that we are in a fight against these terrorists that will determine the future of our country and the world.
So far, President Obama has ignored the recommendations of our top military leaders, instead taking the advice of political advisers at the White House. The results of the President's policies against ISIS can be summed up in one word - failure! Now it is time for the President to start listening to our military leaders and develop a policy that will destroy ISIS once and for all.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford has publicly said that he is in the process of developing recommendations that will offer options to check ISIS in Libya, operating in conjunction with our allies. He is also working on recommendations that will call for additional U.S. and coalition troops to help the Iraqis retake the city of Mosul.
We have sadly seen the results of attacks by ISIS supporters here in the United States. It's time for the President to listen to his military advisers, take the fight to ISIS and destroy their operation. I will continue to support policies that protect our nation from threats to our security. Dangers facing our country are evolving and we must have policies in place that will defend the American people.
