Clinton urges stepped-up fight against Islamic State in Syria

Hillary Clinton speaks at a Grassroots Organizing Event in Dallas, TexasBy Luciana Lopez NEW YORK (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday urged a tougher approach to fighting Islamic State militants than President Barack Obama has pursued, with an intensified air campaign and more U.S. special forces and trainers.
