Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the bombing in Baghdad:

"This attack makes even clearer that ISIS's savagery knows no boundaries of age, sect, or nationality. These barbarians have declared war against all, and they must be destroyed. My heart breaks for the families of murdered loved ones, and I feel especially for the children slaughtered in this cowardly atrocity. I spent many days clearing the streets and homes of Iraq of these terrorists, and it sickens me that they've made a comeback in a different form to terrorize that nation again. We must do more to defeat ISIS abroad before we see more attacks like this in the United States."
