President Obama: ‘Systematic campaign’ against ISIS

The United States will conduct a campaign against the Islamic State that includes targets in Syria, President Barack Obama said in an address to the nation Wednesday night.

The president had been under pressure from both home and abroad to announce a comprehensive U.S. strategy against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) extremist group.

Less than two weeks earlier he said in a press conference that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to address the militants in Iraq and Syria, but he has steadily underscored the need to take the fight to ISIS in recent speeches.
