Carter, Dunford Say Coalition Has Momentum in Fight Against ISIL

The U.S. Department of Defense reports that “while not complacent about the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s capabilities, Defense Department leaders are confident that momentum against the terror group is firmly in the hands of the coalition arrayed against it.”  

“’As far as the campaign is … concerned, I’m confident that we will defeat ISIL and that we have the momentum of the campaign in Iraq and Syria,’ Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the House Armed Services Committee yesterday.”  

“ISIL claimed responsibility for yesterday’s attacks in Brussels, Belgium, that killed 31 and wounded more than 190 people in the city’s airport and the rapid transit system. An American airman and his family were among those hurt.”
