Former Navy SEAL and author of Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell joined Fox News’ Fox & Friends to discuss ISIS’ growing control of the Middle East and the imminent terrorist attack on the Marine-occupied U.S. Al-Asad Air Base.
Hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Brian Kilmeade pointed to a map that showed the presence of ISIS in the Middle East when Luttrell gave them his advice.

The base is just five miles from terrorist-controlled al-Baghdadi and houses 300 Marines, so his advice was one of simplicity: “Jerk the chains off those guys and let them go to work.”
Luttrell said that Marines are fighters; and if they weren’t being handcuffed and simply left to do their job, the fight to take out ISIS would be swift.
“With 300 Marines, you could probably take over Iraq if you wanted to get rid of ISIS completely,” he said. “Make no mistake about it, Marines are war fighters. I mean they are really good at what they do.”

“The only time they are not good at what they do is when someone puts the shackles on them,” he added.
