Rep. Jason Chaffetz: Obama 'Starting to Get There' on ISIS

By    |   Monday, 06 Jul 2015 06:33 PM

President Barack Obama hasn't previously had a sense of urgency in fighting the Islamic State (ISIS), but appears to be looking at the terrorist group more seriously after Monday's meeting with top Pentagon officials, says Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz.

"The fact he was at the Pentagon talking about this is a good sign. I'll say thank you, Mr. President for doing that, but let's unleash the United States military to defeat this enemy in its totality," Chaffetz said Monday on CNN's "The Situation Room."

"Thus far, I have not heard that resolve, and the president is starting to get there, said Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. "I think the American people would be behind him if he would talk about it more often and explain the threat to the homeland in the United States of America."

Obama addressed the press after Monday's Pentagon meeting, saying that the battle against ISIS will be a long one, but the United States eventually will win.
