McCaskill Statement on President Obama's ISIS Speech

Sep 11, 2014

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill today released the following statement after President Obama’s televised address on combating the threat from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS):

I’m glad to hear President Obama is assembling a strong, international coalition against ISIS and the very real threat these extremists pose. ISIS is a barbaric, inhumane terrorist group with the ability to communicate and travel globally, and our partners and allies around the world must be united in in combating an organization with such reach. But it’s critical that we aim before we shoot, and so I was pleased tonight to hear the President’s strategy to confront the threat of ISIS today and in the future.
