Dem Rep: Obama's Counterterror Mission 'Lost'

'I think we've got a real problem here'

Iraq War combat vet Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said Sunday that the mission to defeat terrorism that she signed-up for after 9/11 is "lost" under the Obama Administration.

Gabbard appeared on ABC News' This Week and spoke with Martha Radditz about the growing threat of ISIS and the targeted air strikes ordered by the Obama Administration last week. 

Citing an Obama Administration spokesman who insisted the air strikes were "not an authorization of a broad-based counter-terrorism campaign” against ISIS, Gabbard said, “if our mission is not to take out the Islamic extremists who continue to threaten and wage war against us, then I think we've got a real problem here."

Gabbard also called on the Obama Administration to arm Kurdish military to help them defeat the ISIS terrorists in Northern Iraq. 

Appearing in the segment with Gabbard was fellow congressman and Iraq War vet Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) who said the situation in Iraq was a "worst case scenario" right now.
