Posted February 3, 2015 at 5:38pm

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell opened his weekly news conference Tuesday discussing the apparent burning of a Jordanian hostage by the Islamic State, which the Kentucky Republican said reinforced the need for a strategy against the terrorist group.

“It reminds us again that these people are not going away,” McConnell said. “No matter how many times you declare the ‘War on Terror’ over, it isn’t over until the terrorists relent.”
