TAKING DOWN ISIS?Kerry says US plan to crush terror group is working
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY and a top White House official said
Sunday that the administration’s strategy to defeat the Islamic State is
working, following the purported deaths last week of two ISIS hostages
and concerns about the U.S. needing to do more.
Kerry told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the U.S.-led coalition was "on
the road" to defeating the Islamic extremist group, also known as ISIS
or ISIL, in Iraq and Syria.
He argued that coalition forces have recaptured 22 percent of the
populated areas that ISIS once held in the region “without launching
what we would call a major offensive."
Retired Gen. John Allen, the White House special envoy on the Islamic
State, told ABC’s “This Week” that the United States has accomplished
its goal of devising a “comprehensive plan” and striking a “hard blow.”
“I believe they have actually,” said Allen, pointing to the northern
Syria town of Kobani. Kurdish troops took control of the town several
days ago after hundreds of coalition airstrikes on ISIS positions.
Kerry and Allen got some support for their argument from Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Judeh.
