Beyond the military response, what should the U.S. and international community do to respond to the Paris attacks?

Repercussions from the Paris attacks dominated the news today.

In Turkey, for the G20 summit, President Obama spoke with reporters and described the status of the American-led effort to defeat the militant group known as ISIS or ISIL:

"The terrible events in Paris were obviously a terrible and sickening setback. Even as we grieve with our French friends, however, we can't lose sight that there has been progress being made."
