Blackwater Founder Erik Prince told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon, “I can’t imagine a Hillary Clinton administration ending the ISIS scourge,” then laid out a three-point plan to deal with the terror group.

“One, you have to take away any claim they have to a Caliphate. That means destroying any conventional force they have in Iraq or Syria,” said Prince, adding that he did not think it would require American troops on the ground, but local forces with American support, instead.

Item two is a “Phoenix Program,” similar to the one employed in Vietnam that would capture or kill “the funders of Islamic terror and that would even be the wealthy radical Islamist billionaires funding it from the Middle East, and any of the other illicit activities they’re in.”

“Third,” said Prince, “you have to destroy them on the Internet.” Explaining, he asserted, “That means with a very capable IT program to dig in and find where these jihadist sites are being hosted, where they’re being issued from, and you go and find and finish them at the Internet server level and destroy their ability to communicate, even on the Web.”

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern. The rest of the interview with Erik Prince is below:
