Clinton Refuses To Say We’re At War With ISIS

- December 18, 2015

Clinton Refuses To Say That The United States Is At War Against ISIS.  ABC’S GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: “Is it time to declare war on ISIS?” CLINTON: ”Look, we are definitely in conflict with ISIS and I think we need a new update of military authorization, the AUMF, which was passed after the attack after 9/11, should be brought up to...” STEPHANOPOULOS: “Why not declare war?”  CLINTON: “Well, declare war is a very legal term as you know so well. I think what we want to do is make sure we have every tool at our disposable to, number one, destroy their would-be caliphate in Syria and in Iraq. Number two, do everything we can to dismantle this very effective virtual jihadist network that they’re using on the internet. And number three, do whatever necessary to protect us here at home.” STEPHANOPOULOS: “What are you concerned about in the declaration in war?” CLINTON: “Well, I think that the legal experts say, that if we, there are a lot who say that we already have the authority we need to go after ISIS or any international terrorist network, including Al Qaeda and anybody else in the AUMF. I think it is important, though, for the Congress to vote on behalf of the American people and to make sure that we are updating it to take into account the new authorities at risk.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 12/6/15)
