Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Thursday that moderate Muslims are critical to fighting the spread of terrorism in the United States and around the world.

"We have to understand that moderate Muslims are our best allies in this fight," the Illinois Republican told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "They're the ones that have the ability to notice if somebody at a mosque, for instance, is acting out of place or if somebody that lives next to them in the neighborhood maybe has some weird materials coming in and out of the house.

"This is a time we need to be opening dialogue with the moderate Muslims in order to get the intelligence you need, because you can't do it all from satellites and from looking at encrypted things," he said.

The four-term congressman introduced legislation this week to require the Obama administration and subsequent presidents to present a specific plan for battling the Islamic State or other terrorists to Congress.

"We have to hold the Europeans accountable for information sharing," he told Blitzer. "We have an amazing ability as a country to bring allies together, so maybe if we can have conferences to say how do you share information in a better way."
