‘We will secure international coalition’

5 Sep, 2014

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes says the U.S. is sure of securing international support in the fight against ISIS from European nations concerned that radicalized jihadis who have traveled to the Middle East could return home and create a domestic terror threat. In an interview with CNN:

I absolutely do believe that there will be a coalition of countries from the international community, from here in NATO, also from the region where many of the neighbors have stepped up and said they want to be a part of that type of effort

While the U.S. has yet to commit to airstrikes in Syria there are many other ways partners could contribute:

Intelligence. Law enforcement. Lots of ways for nations to step up to the plate and be a part of this coalition
