New Ad Shows Udall Knows Nothing About ISIS

A recent ad by the National Republican Senatorial Committee slammed Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) for his nonchalant attitude towards the national security threat of ISIS (or, as Obama prefers to call it, ISIL).

“I said last week that ISIL does not present an imminent threat to this nation and it doesn't,” Udall is shown saying in the ad.

“Really?” the narrator responds in disbelief, “Can we take that risk?”



Not only did Udall claim ISIS was not an imminent threat, he alleged that beheaded American journalists Steve Sotloff and James Foley would have encouraged America to use caution when dealing with ISIS:

“I can tell you Steve Sotloff and James Foley would tell us, don’t be impulsive. Horrible and barbarous as those executions were, don’t be impulsive, come up with a plan to knock ISIL back.”

Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who is challenging first-term incumbent Udall for his Senate seat, derided Udall for the comment:

“Americans have watched in horror in recent weeks as two of our fellow countrymen have been brutally executed by terrorists, and it’s outrageous that Senator Udall would put words into the mouths of dead Americans. Furthermore, it’s deeply troubling that he views a terrorist organization like ISIL as not an imminent threat to America.”

Polls show that Gardner has closed the gap and is now pulling into the lead over Udall.
