On Face the Nation, Secretary of State John Kerry called the question of whether the US was a war with ISIS “a wasted of time.”

“Bob, I think there’s frankly a kind of tortured debate going on about terminology. What I’m focused on, obviously, is getting done what we need to get done to ISIL. But, if people need to find a place to land, in terms of what we did in Iraq, originally this is not a war. This is not combat troops on the ground. It’s not hundreds of thousands of people. It’s not that kind of mobilization. But, in terms of Al-Qaeda, in which we have used the term “war with,” yeah… But I think it’s a waste of time to focus on that, frankly, let’s consider what we have to do to degrade and defeat ISIL.”

ISIS declared war against the West in June.
