Obama Vows to Punish ISIS for Beheading of Steven Sotloff
After Sunni militants showed another beheading of an American journalist, Steven Sotloff, President Obama vowed the U.S. would "take the fight against these terrorists" by leading a international coalition to beat back the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The President made his objectives clear, saying ISIS would be degraded and destroyed "so that it's no longer a threat, not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States." Sotloff, 31, was supposedly killed because of Obama's decision to strike the group in northern Iraq.
