Obama Says No Ground War With ISIS

Hosted by

In his speech last night, President Obama mainly focused on the fight against ISIS. But he made it clear this isn’t a conventional conflict. He spoke strongly against the U.S. engaging in a ground war in Syria and Iraq, saying it would play right into jihadists’ hands. But if that’s true, what should we be doing instead to combat Islamist extremists in the Middle East?
