Chairman Royce on the hearing:  “The President said his Administration had no strategy against ISIS two weeks ago, despite it long being on the march.  The Administration is sending mixed messages now.  ISIS is a serious threat to U.S. national security.  The Committee needs to hear a comprehensive strategy from Secretary Kerry on how the Administration is going to confront this brutal and sophisticated terrorist group.”



The Honorable John F. Kerry
Secretary of State
U.S. Department of State
