After days of waiting to see if President Obama would target ISIS with airstrikes inside Syria, he addressed reporters today saying:
'I have consulted with Congress throughout this process. I am confident that as Commander-in-Chief I have the authorities to engage in the acts that we are conducting currently. As our strategy develops, we we will continue to consult with Congress, and I do think it'll be important for Congress to weigh in, that our consultations with Congress continue to develop so that the American people are a part of the debate. But I don't want to put the cart before the horse. We don't have a strategy yet. '
Anderson spoke to Jim Acosta for the White House response to the President saying, 'We don't have a strategy yet.'
There are serious questions about whether ISIS can hold on to and govern areas it now controls. Anderson discussed it with the New York Times' Ben Hubbard.
