Senators Graham & Reed on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley// Senator Graham "there's no way you can solve the problem in Iraq without hitting [ISIS] in Syria."

Today on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Senators Jack Reed (D-RI) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) discussed the threat that ISIS poses to the homeland.  Both members of the Senate Armed Services Committee agreed that the United States has grave incentives to eliminate ISIS.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Senator Graham on the propensity of the ISIS threat: “It's about time now to assume the worst about these guys, rather than to underestimating them. They're not the J.V. team anymore. They're the most prominent terrorist organization in the world, but they're not the only one. They're in competition with the other jihadist groups. And the gold medal will be awarded to the group that can hit America”

Senator Reed on responding to ISIS: “it's in our interests with our regional partners to disrupt and ultimately destroy ISIS because of the threat it poses to interests in the region, as well as in the United States. “

Britain's Ambassador to the U.S. Peter Westmacott on CNN's State of the Union "we are close" to identifying Foley's killer.

Today on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, British Ambassador to the US Sir Peter Westmacott spoke to Crowley about the alarming numbers of Westerners fighting in Iraq and Syria.  In light of the revelation that James Foley’s executioner had a British accent, the British government has taken measures to identify the ISIS militant.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Ambassador Westmacott on identifying James Foley’s executioner: “I do know from my colleagues at home that we are close."

Ambassador Westmacott on jihadists from the West: “People think that maybe as many as 500 British subjects have gone to Syria and Iraq for this cause of jihad. And it's not a problem exclusive to the United Kingdom. We have got people from lots and lots of Western democracies who, unfortunately, are misguided enough to go to that part of the region and take up a cause which is a betrayal of all our values.”

Ambassador Westmacott on providing lethal assistance to opposition: “what has happened in Iraq and the way in which ISIS has scooped up weapons and money and other support which has been provided initially for the purpose of getting rid of Bashar al-Assad is an indication that that caution shown by my government and the United States government was perhaps well-founded.”

Ferguson's Congressman Rep. Clay on State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Ferguson police were way too heavy-handed in the way they interacted with peaceful demonstrators."

Today on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Ferguson’s Congressman William Lacy Clay (D-MO) and former NYPD Chief Bernard Kerik spoke to Crowley about the militarization of police in quelling protests. In an exclusive interview with CNN, Representative Clay stressed the need for the demilitarization of police forces. While former NYPD Chief Kerik diverged from this view, both agreed that police must undergo adequate training to properly use law enforcement equipment.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Rep. Clay on the militarization of local police forces: “Well, and the scenes that we saw in Ferguson, Missouri, this past week, with a militarized police force facing down innocent protesters with sniper rifles and machine guns is totally unacceptable in America. Now, I have gotten word that some of these police departments who have received this equipment have not been properly - properly trained in its use by the military.”

Rep. Clay on lack of diversity within the police force: “a bigger problem here in Ferguson and across this region and across America are that police forces who are in African-American communities are not diverse enough. They do not have enough diversity within their force. They do not have a healthy relationship with the African-American community that they are supposed to police.”
