Campaign: Clinton Calls for Intensified Fight Against ISIS

CNN reports that “Hillary Clinton is calling for more allied planes, more airstrikes and a ‘broader target set’ — though no large-scale mobilization of U.S. ground troops — to combat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.”  

“She urged Congress to approve a new authorization of the use of military force against ISIS, saying that doing so would signal ‘that the U.S. is committed to this fight. The time for delay is over. We should get this done.'”  

“In the wake of the Paris attacks, for which ISIS has claimed responsibility, Clinton said that ‘every society faces a choice between fear and resolve’ — an indirect shot at her Republican foes in the 2016 presidential race, who have called for the United States to shut out Syrian refugees.”
