Bill Clinton joined Jon Stewart on The Daily Show to discuss his global initiative, ISIS, and Iraq. Clinton endorsed the United States’ approach to dealing with ISIS in the Thursday interview, and dismissed right-wing assertions that we need to once again enter a full-blown war within the country’s borders.
“We can’t win a ground war in Iraq — we proved that,” Clinton told Stewart. “But they can. And we can help them win it. And that’s gotta be what we’re trying to do.”
“The Iraqi government finally includes Sunnis who were representing those tribal leaders who are moderate and without whom ISIS cannot be defeated,” Clinton explained. “We can give them intelligence, and we can do bombing, and we have to do that to send a signal to them. That there’s a price for decapitating those people.”
“You can’t let people get away with that, that’s a terrible signal to the world,” Clinton said.
