Josh Earnest: "The United States Is At War With ISIL"


JOSH EARNEST: This is not a situation where it’s the United States against ISIL. The fact is, ISIL has indicated that they’re ready to go to war against the world. And this president β€” as is expected of American presidents β€” is stepping up to lead an international coalition to confront that threat, and to deny ISIL a safe-haven. And ultimately this international coalition will be responsible for degrading and destroying ISIL. So I think what you could conclude from this is the United States is at war with ISIL, in the same way that we’re at war with al-Qaeda and its al-Qaeda affiliates all around the globe.
