Democratic candidates condemned the attacks in Paris as they started their second debate on Saturday, with Hillary Clinton defending her record as Secretary of State. The debate was held at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Asked twice whether the Obama administration underestimated the threat of ISIS, Clinton said she “doesn’t think the United States has the bulk of the responsibility” in the region, citing the continued regime of Bashar al-Assad and the troubled regime of Nouri al-Maliki after U.S. forces were withdrawn.

“We have to look at ISIS as the leading threat of an international network. It cannot be contained–it must be defeated,” she said, in a seeming rhetorical break from President Obama.

She also declined to characterize the threat of ISIS as “radical Islam.”

“I don’t think we are at war with all of Islam,” Clinton said, instead referring to it as “jihadist.” She said twice that she doesn’t “think you can paint too broad a brush” when characterizing the nature of the threat. “This is an incredibly complicated part of the world.”

  1. We agree with Hilary Clinton, ground forces are needed to restore peace in Iraq and Syria.

    I believe they should have a referendum in a few years if they want to be a state of America. Let us give them genuine ‘freedom’ that President Bush promised before invasion.

  2. Both Obama, if that is what they call him, and Hilary Clinton are extremely naïve about the cause of terror. One may be ignorant but the other is completely dishonest. Islam, as they call it, now promoted by Obama, is the root cause. It has divided the world into the camp of the faithful and that of war. When will these empty heads understand that?
    Zia, you are advocating sending ground troops into Syria? Whose will they be? If the countries in the region want sacrifices, let them make those themselves. Even if American presence would be appreciated (which has never happened), the evil coward in chief has no stomach for such because it will defeat his grand plan to ‘stand with the muslims if the political winds shift in an ugly direction’.
    We are told that there are ‘moderate muslims’. This is the time for them to act.
    Before you task me on saying that Obama is promoting islam and terrorism (a challenge which I am not running away from), remember that sometime ago TMT ran the headline, for days, on how the American embassies in Prague and other European capitals were disseminating information that promoted what they called ‘peaceful islam’. There has been no reaction from the aclu. Think of what would have happened had the story mentioned Christianity as the beneficiary of such an evil policy.
