Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Saturday that despite recent setbacks battling the Islamic State, the U.S. has made many advances combatting the terror group on social media.
The comment came on MSNBC's "Taking the Hill" which features former Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy as the host.
"This past week, though, when it comes to ISIS, the mixed result — unfortunately, Ramadi was taken over by ISIS. The same time, the army's delta force went and captured the money man for ISIS in Syria. So obviously mixed results. But do you think the strategy's working? What else needs to be done?" he asked.
"It's an enormous challenge. And we have to fight it on every front, including the front of social media. That's a place where they have really made more advances than you would have suspected. And that is where we have to fight them, as well," Pelosi said. "This apprehension in Syria — well, killing of one and taking of his wife, as well as important intelligence information was a success. But, again, we have to fight them on all fronts. Communication-wise as well as militarily."
