U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham releases statement regarding execution of Steven Sotloff

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, R- South Carolina, has released a statement about the news of the execution of American journalist Steven Sotloff.

"Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Mr. Sotloff and all those who have suffered under ISIL's barbaric behavior.

"However, condemnation is not enough to deal with this scourge.  It is time we act decisively against ISIL wherever it resides.  Whenever American air power has been employed, in coordination with reliable partners on the ground, ISIL has been devastated.  It's a tactic that should be aggressively pursued both in Syria and Iraq.

"Mr. President, if you can't come up with a strategy, at least tell us what the goal is regarding ISIL."
