John Kerry: It Took A Long Time To "Neutralize" al-Qaeda, "We Hope To Do Da'esh Much Faster Than That"


SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: We're confident that if we stay steady, and our heads in thinking creatively but also being strog and committed to our fundamental value, we're going to defeat Daesh. We began our fight against al-Qaeda in 2001 and it took us quite a few years before we were able to eliminate Osama bin Laden and their leasership and neutralize them as an effective force. So hopefully we will be able to do Daesh much faster than that.

The idea that al-Qaeda was defeated and did not simply grow and transform into ISIS is laughable.
