US Reacts to ISIS Video Threatening Washington D.C.

Paris (CNN) Declaring that "France is at war," President Francois Hollande on Monday proposed sweeping new laws and more spending on public safety in response to Friday's terror attacks in Paris -- promising to eradicate terrorism, but not at the expense of France's freedom.

"Terrorism will not destroy France, because France will destroy it," Hollande said in a rare address to a joint session of Parliament.

The speech came as police scoured France and Belgium in a hunt for suspects in the brutal attacks, which left at least 129 dead, and as Parisians tried to return to school and work in a city scarred by its second major terror attack this year.

Other world powers also responded. Britain stepped up security for Tuesday's soccer match between England and France, while the United States reacted to a newly released ISIS video threatening to "strike America in its stronghold, Washington."

CIA Director John Brennan said he would be surprised if the group doesn't have additional attacks in preparation.

"I would anticipate this is not the only operation they have in the pipeline," he said. "I do believe this is something we will have to deal with for quite some time."
