WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement in response to President Obama saying, “we don’t yet have a complete strategy” to deal with ISIL.

Graham said:

“The threat posed by ISIL is growing exponentially, and President Obama’s lack of a strategy is Commander-in-Chief malpractice.

“Radical Islam, in its most vicious form, is gathering momentum. They have more safe havens, more capabilities, more money, and more weapons than at any time since 9/11.

“Today, they are large, rich, and entrenched. We must make them small, poor, and on the run.

“It’s long past time we upped our game to confront this dangerous and growing threat to the American homeland.”
