Nancy Pelosi talks about fighting ISIS, ‘including the front of social media’

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke on MSNBC’s weekend show Taking The Hill about the Obama administration’s plans to fight ISIS as former Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) interviewed his previous Speaker of the House. Pelosi was asked what can be done strategically to stop ISIS after this week’s takeover of Ramadi by the terrorist group in Iraq.

Pelosi, calling the operation an “enormous challenge,” said fighting ISIS on “social media” has really been making some progress.

“We have to fight it on every front, including the front of social media,” Pelosi said. “That’s a place where they have really made more advances than you would have suspected.”

FMR. REP. PATRICK MURPHY, MSNBC 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 captured the money man for ISIS in Syria. so obviously mixed results. So you think the strategy’s working? What else needs to be done?

REP. NANCY PELOSI: 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. This apprehension in Syria — well, killing of one and taking of his wife, as well as important intelligence information was a success. Again, we have to fight them on all fronts. Communication-wise as well as militarily.
