Maggie Hassan on War & Peace



We are at war on ISIS; intensify our efforts to destroy them

It's clear that we must do more to defeat ISIS. To eliminate ISIS:
  • We must intensify our efforts to destroy ISIS's command and control structure through both air strikes and targeted special operations raids where necessary.
  • We must increase our coordination and support for moderate forces like the Kurdish fighters who have shown promising capability on the battlefield.
  • We must strengthen both our intelligence capabilities and our ability to cut off ISIS's funding mechanisms by targeting its lucrative oil business and smuggling activities.
  • And we must increase pressure on Russia and the rest of the international community to reach a political solution in Syria that takes into account who will fill the void that will be left after Assad. And it also means that Congress should finally take up, debate and pass a strong Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF), and be honest with the American people about the fact that we are at war with ISIS.
