Does President Obama have a plan for dealing with ISIS?

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.

    Everybody calm down. There IS a plan in place for dealing with the Jihadi massacre headed out way.

    Since the VA has started portraying disabled veterans as Oscar the Grouch, the entire US Army has decided to stand down and let your stupid puppet go out and fight your wars for you.
