Senate Dem calls for stronger military action against ISIS

"I strongly believe we need to further increase our efforts in Syria and Iraq directly and expand our support to partner nations in other countries where ISIL is operating," Feinstein said, using a different acronym for ISIS.

"It has become clear that limited air strikes and support for Iraqi forces and the Syrian opposition are not sufficient to protect our country and our allies," she said in a statement.

"This is a war that affects us all, and it's time we take real action to confront these monsters who target innocent civilians," she added.

“In the last two weeks, ISIL has claimed responsibility for attacks in Paris and Beirut and the bombing of a Russian airliner. The fight is quickly spreading outside Iraq and Syria, and that’s why we must take the battle to them," Feinstein said.

Feinstein's comments are among the first in Congress to call for greater military action against ISIS.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday also called for the U.S. to do more, calling the attacks a "wake up call" for America and said there should be "no doubt" ISIS poses a direct threat to the U.S.
