Quote

 

"ISIS is committing genocide. Indeed, the suffering ISIS has inflicted during its brutal reign is not only shocking but unconscionable at all levels. However, this designation, especially when made by the United States, has immense consequence, and therefore should only result from careful assessment and deliberation."
Laurie Blank, CNN, March 18, 2016
