Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the President's comments on ISIS earlier today in Antaylya, Turkey:

"President Obama continues to see the world as he wants it to be, not as it is. The barbaric attacks in Paris are more than a ‘setback'. They are a sign ISIS is not contained and that the President's policy of confusion, half-measures, and delay isn't working. Our fight against ISIS is under-resourced and unfocused. And it is too reliant on President Obama's political talking points rather than on sound policy and advice from our military commanders. It's time for America to lead and stop ISIS abroad so it doesn't attack us at home."
