"Two days later—I have said to my colleagues over the past week and a half—2 days later, the President’s Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, made a dramatically contradictory assessment: “Despite all of our progress against ISIL in the battlefield and on the ground, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach.”"

Joe Wilson, R-SC
"The U.S. battle against the Islamic State has not yet curbed the group’s global reach and as pressure mounts on the extremists in Iraq and Syria, they are expected to plot more attacks on the West and incite violence by lone wolves, CIA Director John Brennan told Congress."
Isis June 21, 2016
John Thune, R-SD
"Two days later, however, the President’s CIA Director painted a very different picture. Testifying before Congress, CIA Director John Brennan stated: “Unfortunately, despite all our progress against ISIL on the battlefield and in the financial realm, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach.”"
