Congressman Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, released the following statement after sending President Obama a letter requesting any intelligence that led to the conclusion ISIL is ‘contained’.

“Mr. President, you have stated that the goal of the United States is to ‘degrade and ultimately defeat ISIL’, yet every day the headlines suggest neither has been accomplished. Your statements on containment, and the diminishing threat posed by ISIL continue to conflict with assessments provided to Congress. If you have received any intelligence supporting your claims, I urge you to share that information with the appropriate Congressional committees.”
