Tulsi Gabbard, (D-HAWAII): I think the danger of calling it "an organization" misses the point that this isn't about one specific group, and until we recognize that it is this radical Islamic ideology that is fueling this, the name of the group can change, the tactics may change based on a different geographic location or what is happening on the ground.

Again, we see this because we have ISIS, Boko Haram, and other groups, especially in the middle east, but operating around the world. Each of them have the on commonality of being fueled by this radical Islamic ideology. So we can't say this is about one organization only, because if we do there is no way we can defeat this ideology, both militarily and ideologically.
