John Kerry Testifies: ISIS ‘Must Be Defeated, Period’

IRAQ-CRISIS/USASecretary of State John Kerry laid out the Obama administration’s plan to defeat the Islamic State (also called ISIS and ISIL) in testimony before a Senate committee on Wednesday.

Kerry, sitting before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he did not come to rehash “old debates” on Iraq but rather to discuss an issue that all sides should be able to agree on.

“ISIL must be defeated, period, end of story,” he said.

Responding to criticism that President Barack Obama hasn’t acted quickly enough on the group that has taken over a vast swath of eastern Syria and northern Iraq, Kerry outlined what he said the administration has been doing since 2013, when ISIS formed from what had formerly been al-Qaida in Iraq.

“We do have a clear strategy to degrade, defeat and destroy ISIL, and it’s not in its infancy,” Kerry said. “We’re not starting from scratch.”

Now, he said, the United States is building a coalition of allies to transition from a defensive strategy to an offensive one.

    Baloney.

    What is is, a new AWA (Affordable War Act)? Remember the guy who said, “If you like your doctor, you can keep him, period.”

    I’m tired of the persistent deceptions perpetrated by the current administration.

    If you asked me I’d say.”The Democrats must be defeated, period, end of story.”
