Re "Sen. Franken urges Justice Department to focus on ISIL recruiting at home" (Sept. 2): Now that ISIL has beheaded the second reporter in the region, I think President Obama needs to get tougher on this group of murderous thugs. It's time that he and the U.N. put stronger sanctions on these terrorists before they get out of control.

Sanctions worked on Russia, so it's only natural that ISIL would shut down immediately.
