Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Istanbul terrorist attack:

"I am sickened by the suicide bombing in Istanbul. The terrorists targeted the crossroads of the world and the victims hailed from different nations. This attack makes even clearer that the fight against radical Islamic terrorism is not just Turkey's fight, or the Syrian people's fight, or the United States's fight - it is the world's fight. What more will it take for President Obama to understand that truth? The United States must stand strong with allies like Turkey and begin to lead a serious campaign to destroy the Islamic State."
