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.
