"Our message should be very clear: 'Are you intending to do harm to America or any Americans? Are you planning or training any where in the world to do harm to America or Americans? If you are we have the ability and the right to come and take you out.'  Very simple. That should be very clear with what our mission is. And we shouldn't have to mince words about that.  We know that if someone says you shouldn't go into Syria and that is where ISIL has been training, planning and plotting against America and Americans?  Then go in and get them out." 

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin speaking with reporters Wednesday, September 10, 2014
