Jeb Bush on National Security

Bush blames Barack Obama for the rise of ISIS and loss of American prestige around the world, and believes the US must take a more active role in combating terrorism.

Jeb Bush: “It is, I'd say, it is Islamic terrorism, and back to the question of what we are dealing with in Iraq; when we pull back, voids are filled. That's the lesson in history, and sadly this president does not believe in American leadership. He does not believe it and the net result is that we have a Caliphate the size of Indiana that gains energy each and every day to recruit Americans in our own country, and the threat to the homeland relates to the fact that we've not dealt with this threat of terror in the Middle East. We should have a no fly zone in Syria. We should have a support for the remnants of the Syrian Free Army and create safe zones. If you wanna deal with the four million refugees that are leaving Syria because of the devastation there, then we oughta create safe zones for them to stay in the region rather than go to Europe, and that requires American leadership. Without American leadership, every other country in the neighborhood begins to change their priorities. It is tragic that you see Iraq and other countries now talking to Russia. It wasn't that long ago Russia had no influence in the region at all. And so the United States needs to lead across the board. This president and Hillary Clinton both do not believe that the United States has a leadership role to play and we're now paying the price and it will have a huge impact on the economy of this country if we don't deal with this.”
