WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rejected the idea of sending thousands of ground troops to fight Islamic State in the Middle East, saying the move would only hand the militant group a recruitment tool that could boost its ranks.

"In terms of thousands of combat troops, like some on the Republican side are recommending, I think that should be a non-starter," she told CBS News in an interview that aired on Tuesday.

Clinton is seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidential election in November 2016.
