Rep. Chris Smith: ISIS airstrikes never meant to be "silver bullet"

In a video released by ISIS Friday, British aid work Alan Henning appears to have been beheaded at the hands of the terrorists. In the same video, American aid Peter Kassig appears nearby, kneeling, with an ISIS militant standing by his side.

If ISIS continues with its now familiar, brutal pattern, that American is likely to be the next victim. Republican Congressman Chris Smith, a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, joins Jim Sciutto.

    Republican Congressman Chris Smith, a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, comes out of the long vacation/campaign session to mouth off about what is going on with ISIS. Where are your House companions to debate this subject with you? You come out of "hiding" and make a soundbite about this new war. There will be more beheadings as long as ISIS has Westerners to behead. If the MEDIA and the Republicans would just shut up on media, then ISIS won't have a willing audience for their barbarism.
