Last week, the President’s National Security Advisor, Susan E. Rice, spoke on the whole-of-government strategy against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) while addressing cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In her remarks, Rice spoke of a comprehensive strategy to combat ISIL that includes all elements of U.S. power, saying “Ours is truly a whole-of-government campaign.” She went on to review the four facets of the ISIL strategy – attacking ISIL’s core in Syria and Iraq, targeting ISIL’s branches, disrupting ISIL’s global network, and protecting the homeland.
Rice also discussed interagency and international efforts to ending the civil war in Syria, which includes military and intelligence personnel, diplomats, and partners from Russia and other nations.
