GOP Rep. Peter King: ‘Really Important’ for U.S. to ‘Support the President’ on ISIS Attacks

Reacting to U.S-led airstrikes that began Monday against the Islamic terrorist network ISIS in Syria, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said Americans should support President Barack Obama “until ISIS has been devastated.”

It was reported Monday and confirmed by the Pentagon that the U.S., along with five other Arab countries, began targeting ISIS in Syria.

“This is a very, very positive step,” King said of the coalition of Arab countries involved. He said it was now necessary for Americans to “come together.”

“Whatever happened in the past, that’s behind us,” he said. “What’s important now is as Americans we go forward, support the president and urge him to continue this to make sure these attacks continue and go on until ISIS has been devastated.”

King also said the involvement of Arab countries demonstrates that the attacks are not solely coming from the West but also from Middle Eastern countries as well.
