Aug. 22, 2014
(Arlington, VA) -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel calls ISIS the most sophisticated and well-funded terrorist organization that U.S. officials have seen in a long time. During a Pentagon briefing yesterday, Hagel said the U.S. and its allies must be prepared for anything, including another 9-11-style plot. Hagel cited the effectiveness of targeted U.S. airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq and said the actions will continue.
