Obama to lay out Islamic State battle plan

US President Barack Obama makes a statement on the situation in Iraq at Martha's Vineyard on August 11, 2014Barack Obama will steel Americans for a prolonged battle against the Islamic State Wednesday, despite devoting much of his presidency to avoiding sapping new entanglements in the Middle East. His hand forced by the radical group’s sudden rise in Syria and Iraq, Obama will use a prime time address to argue that targeted military might and an international coalition can defeat IS, before it poses a threat to the US homeland. It remained unclear whether Obama would also use the address on the ceremonial state floor of the White House — where he announced the success of a US operation to kill Osama bin Laden — to signal an expansion of US airstrikes against IS from Iraq into Syria.
