Darin LaHood on Homeland Security
LaHood said "it was a mistake for President Obama to pull out our troops when he first got into office" because "we need to do everything we can to contain, stop and eliminate ISIS and radical Islam in the Middle East. If you look at any conflict the U.S. has been involved with for the last 100 years, we've kept troops there," said LaHood, listing Germany, Korea, Japan and Bosnia as examples. "That's why they're peaceful. To pull out our troops and have the disintegration of a country and Syria and the rise of ISIS is a mistake."
LaHood said his year as a terrorism prosecutor "gave me good insight into some of the scary things that are out there."
