Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement regarding the President’s primetime address to the nation on ISIS:

“Tonight, the American people heard the President present a concrete and forceful strategy to degrade and destroy ISIS.

“I commend the President for his persistent, strong leadership in establishing a government of reconciliation in Iraq, and in his diplomatic efforts to have coordination among our NATO allies and regional powers.  Working with a broad coalition of partners and without using U.S. combat forces on the ground, we will lead a comprehensive counter-terrorism strategy to dismantle the threat ISIS poses to the region and the United States.
