State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday that she was standing by her argument that the U.S. can’t just “kill its way out” of war with the Islamic State terror group without also tackling economic disparities in the Middle East. […]

Former National Security Agency director Gen. Michael Hayden, whom Harf previously worked for as a spokesperson with the CIA, said Wednesday morning on “Morning Joe” that he thought Harf would “want to take a mulligan” for how she phrased the disputed comments on “Hardball.”

Harf herself came on the program soon after and refused to back down.

“Well, I’m not sure I would take a mulligan on this one,” Harf said. “But I think [Hayden] went on to say something I would agree with. In the short term — and I said this on ‘Hardball’ the other night — we are killing them and we will continue killing ISIS terrorists that pose a threat to us. We’re very good at that.”
