Obama to discuss Islamic State fight at Pentagon

US President Barack Obama has ruled out putting infantry boots on the ground in Syria, saying it would be counterproductive to the fight against the Islamic State groupFacing intense scrutiny about his counterterror policy, President Barack Obama will huddle with top security brass and deliver an address at the Pentagon Monday, hoping to underscore his role as commander-in-chief. The White House said Obama will hold the meeting of his National Security Council and give remarks, just days after he gave an Oval Office primetime address on the terror threat that received a mixed response from Americans. No major policy changes are expected, but Obama will again try to convince a skeptical public that his administration is charting the correct course in tackling the Islamic State group.
