U.S. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) notes there is growing bipartisan concern about President Obama's refusal to use the term Islamic extremism.
“By his not using this term ‘Islamic extremism’ and clearly identifying our enemies, it raised a whole host of questions in exactly what Congress will be authorizing? Who will we be targeting? Who is our enemy?
"And unless you understand who your enemy is, unless you clearly identify your enemy, then you cannot come up with a very effective strategy to defeat that enemy.
“It’s a much larger war really that is as much an ideological war as it is a military war,” Gabbard said.
