President Obama admitted today that his administration does not have a strategy in combating the militant Islamic group ISIS that has grabbed large chunks of Iraq and Syria.
The president said he would be meeting today with the National Security Council.
"The options that I'm asking for from the Joint Chiefs focuses primarily on making sure that ISIL is not overrunning Iraq," Obama said using another acronym for the militant Islamic group ISIS.
"We don't have a strategy yet. We're seeing some news reports suggesting we are further ahead than we are," he said.
