Clinton: ‘We Are at War’ With Terrorist Groups

The mass killing in Nice, France, on Thursday showed once again that the fight against violent extremists is “a different kind of war,” according to Hillary Clinton.

Business Insider reported that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was quick to respond to the incident, in which at least 84 people died. The assailant shot Bastille Day celebrants and ran over them with the large truck he was driving.

While no group had claimed responsibility for the attack, Clinton blamed “radical jihadists.” She told CNN: “It’s clear we are at war with these terrorist groups and what they represent. It’s a different kind of war, and we need to be smart about how we wage it and win it.”

The candidate’s comment prompted CNN’s Anderson Cooper to ask: “When you say we’re at war, who are we at war with? Are we at war with radical jihadists? Radical Islam? Who are we at war against?” Clinton replied: “We are at war against radical jihadists who use Islam to recruit and radicalize others in order to pursue their evil agenda.”

Referring to Republicans’ insistence on using the words “radical Islamic terrorism,” she added: “It’s not so important what we call these people as to what we do about them. … It reminds us very vividly and tragically that we have to stand with our allies and not abandon them; and we have to strengthen our alliances, including with NATO, not undermine them.”
