Testimony on U.S. Policy Towards Iraq and Syria and the Threat Posed by The Islamic State of Iraq and The Levant (ISIL) published on

Authored by United States Senate, Committee on Armed Services
“ISIS has terrorized the Iraqi and Syrian people, engaging in kidnappings, killings, persecutions of religious minorities, and attacking schools, hospitals, and cultural sites. ISIS has brought home its barbarity with the brutal beheading of American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and British aid worker, David Haines. While ISIS is currently focused on building an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East, its poisonous ideology is hostile, not only to the region, but to the world, and there is real risk that the area it controls could become a launching pad for future terrorist attacks against the United States and our allies. This threat is amplified by foreign fighters who travel from Western countries to join with ISIS and then return to their countries of origin with advanced training and fighting experience.”
