Still no strategy.
Never mind what American news reports say: President Obama is “totally committed” to dealing with ISIL — and his strategy is “becoming more clear by the day,” Secretary of State John Kerry told U.S. allies at the NATO summit in Wales on Friday.
“Contrary to what you sort of heard in the politics of our country, the President is totally committed; there is a strategy that is clear, becoming more clear by the day,” Kerry said.
“And it really relies on a holistic approach to ISIL. That is to say that we need to do kinetic, we need to attack them in ways that prevent them from taking over territory, that bolster the Iraqi security forces, others in the region who are prepared to take them on, without committing troops of our own, obviously.
