Democrat Dianne Feinstein is breaking with President Barack Obama once again on ISIS, saying that the terrorist organization is not contained. President Obama had made a comment to the effect that ISIS was under control in an interview with ABC News that aired just hours ahead of the ISIS attacks that struck Paris, France on Friday night.
"I’ve never been more concerned," the senior senator from California told MSNBC Monday. "I read the intelligence faithfully. ISIL is not contained. ISIL is expanding."
Fienstein is no back-bench Democrat, first elected in 1992; she is also the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“They just put out a video saying it is their intent to attack this country. I think we have to be prepared,” said Feinstein, showing a degree of common sense that is uncommon among her party's leaders.
"There's only one way we are going to diminish them, and that is by taking them out."
