Based on the first question, it was clear CBS moderator John Dickerson was not going to make it a breezy night for Mrs. Clinton. Just hours before the terror carnage in Paris took 129 lives, President Obama declared ISIS had been “contained.” Do you believe the Obama administration has understated the threat of ISIS?

Clinton began by avoiding the question, speaking in general about the threat of ISIS.
“It cannot be contained,” Clinton said. “It must be defeated.”
If we summon our leadership resources, she continued - be it our diplomacy, sharing of intelligence and more, than we can bring people together.
Not content with that ambivalent answer, Dickerson pushed for a more direct response in regards to the White House’s failed foreign policy.
