He also believes states will need to increase their efforts in the fight against terrorist groups if they are ever going to be defeated.

“I’d like to see the members of NATO in Europe take their defense obligations more seriously and spend on their defense more proportionally.

Gorka stated the level of preparedness does not exist on the level that it needs to.

“You don’t want to stop these guys minutes before they deploy, you want to catch them weeks and months beforehand by having people in those communities, human intelligence assets that can identify them in time, that’s what seems to be missing right now.”
