Obama on IS in Syria: 'We don't have a strategy yet'

US President Barack Obama speaks in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, DC on August 28, 2014President Barack Obama admitted Thursday he did not yet have a strategy to combat the Islamic State in Syria, quelling speculation he would imminently unleash the US military against the group in the civil-war-torn country. The president stressed though that he was developing a broad and comprehensive plan which would involve military, diplomatic and regional efforts designed to defeat IS for good, in both Syria and Iraq, not just in the short term.
