Fiorina talks ISIS, 2016 in NH1 Radio interview


CONCORD - Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and potential 2016 GOP Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says President Obama needs a more forceful response to ISIS in the wake of the death of another American hostage.

In an interview with NH1 Radio, Fiorina says "ISIS is evil. They have to be defeated. And they respond only to force".

Fiorina says there's an opportunity to bring together an alliance of nations to fight ISIS, but not without American leadership, something she feels she has been lacking in the Obama Administration.

Fiorina spoke to NH1 during a visit to the Granite State on Tuesday that included a speech at the Politics & Eggs breakfast at the Bedford Village Inn. She's widely believed to be preparing for a 2016 Presidential run, and told us that she'll likely make a decision in late April or early May.

Fiorina is best known for her time as the CEO of Hewlett-Packard, and also ran for Senate in Califorina in 2010, losing to Democrat incumbent Barbara Boxer. More recently she's been involved in the Unlocking Potential Super PAC, which raised money for several races last fall.

Repeating a line she used last month during a speaking engagement in Iowa, Fiorina touted her own international experience at the expense of another likely female presidential candidate.

"Like Hillary Clinton, I too have flown hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe-but of course, flying is an activity, it's not an accomplishment."
