While most of the presidential candidates compete to present themselves as the toughest on terrorism and the threat from ISIS, Paul Pillar, a former U.S. intelligence official and author who now writes at The National Interest, cautions in this installment of the Burning Issues video series against overreacting to ISIS – and against reacting without a long-term plan for addressing the effects of an intervention.

Pillar, who has just authored a new book, “How America Misunderstands the World,” warns that some of the plans for military intervention against ISIS could well do little more than breed more extremists. He raises a key concern about Hillary Clinton’s support of a “no-fly zone” in the area of the conflict in Syria as well as concerns about the positions of the Republican candidates.
