Hillary Clinton wants social networks to enlist in the American fight against ISIS, suggesting that Facebook, Twitter and YouTube should work to shut down the terror group's online recruitment and propaganda accounts.

"They cannot permit the recruitment and the actual direction of attacks or the celebration of violence by this sophisticated Internet user," Clinton said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "They're going to have to help us take down these announcements and these appeals."

Clinton pointed to San Bernardino, California, attack in which a couple killed 14 people last week as an example of the negative impact of ISIS use of U.S.-based social media. "If you look at the story about this woman and maybe the man, too, who got radicalized, self-radicalized, we're going to need help from Facebook, and from YouTube and from Twitter."

ISIS is know to use social nets to recruit new members and inspire terror attacks.
