Rep. Blackburn: Hillary Should Worry More About ISIS 'Obsession' Than GOP Critics

Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"

Hillary Clinton refuses to acknowledge America's at war with radical Islamic terrorists – and that jihad is far more than "a law enforcement issue," Rep. Marsha Blackburn tells Newsmax TV.

In an interview on "The Steve Malzberg Show" Friday, the Tennessee Republican charges the front-running Democratic presidential contender, President Barack Obama and other Democrats are sorely misguided if they believe Republicans are "obsessed" with identifying the enemy.

"We're at war," she declared. "We have an enemy. It is radical Islamic extremism and we have to kill these people and destroy their network."

Blackburn blasted the former secretary of state's reluctance to use the term "Islamic terrorism" – and her criticism of Republicans who have been calling her out on her reluctance as being "an obsession."

"Well, guess what? Their obsession is doing away with us in our way of life," Blackburn said. "Their obsession is a jihad. It is the caliphate. It is global in scope and nature, and their telegraphing it."

"This is one of the big problems that we have with the left on this issue," she added. "They want to say this is a law enforcement issue. It is not a law enforcement issue, it is war. It is a three-letter word. Certainly, Hillary Clinton and [President] Barack Obama and [Vice President] Joe Biden can't spell the word 'war.'"

Blackburn also bashed Obama for his vow to veto legislation that would place tighter restrictions on accepting Syrian refugees into America.

"We are just bumfuzzled, if you will," she said. "The bill puts protections in place to make certain that we do not have Syrian refugees or those terrorists who are going to come into this country... doing harm to the American people."

"We have ISIS and the terrorist organizations who are very transparent in the fact that they intend to do us harm," she said. "They are making moves as they are now exporting terrorism. They have talked about coming in and circumventing our immigration systems and utilizing the … the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [policy] and getting these young men who fall into that 14-17 year of age category into the country."

"It just is wise to say 'hey, we're going to put a halt on this until we figure this out,'" she said.

Blackburn adds that vetting of Syrian refugees in Syria will do little to ensure terrorists don't slip through.

"When you talk to someone who is a case worker, and is vetting these people, they will tell you they do not have the tools to confirm, first of all, that the person is who they claim to be and secondly, that the person you are sending them to, their host, is in the country legally or that they are who they claim to be," she charged.
