Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein says President Obama may be too cautious in his approach to dealing with Islamic State militants.
The chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Feinstein told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the Defense and State departments have been putting together a response to the threat.
The California Democrat says she has seen nothing to compare to the viciousness of the militants who have overrun large portions of Iraq, killed civilians and beheaded American journalist James Foley. The Islamic State group has financing, military structure and weapons unlike any other militants, she said.
“This is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous,” Feinstein said in an interview that aired Sunday on “Meet the Press” on NBC. “And they’ll kill with abandon.”
Obama said Friday that he did not yet have a strategy for dealing with the Islamic State group, a remark that brought criticism from Democrats and Republicans.
