Monday at the G-7 Summit in Germany, President Barack Obama said after months of engaging ISIS in an air war over Iraq and Syria while supposedly building up an international coalition to fight them on the ground in the absence of U.S. ground troops, the Administration does not “yet have a complete strategy.”

Obama said, “We’re reviewing a range of plans for how we might do that, essentially accelerating the number of Iraqi forces that are properly trained and equipped and have a focused strategy with leadership. When a finalized plan is presented to me by the pentagon, then I will share it with the American people. We don’t yet have a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the Iraqis as well, about how recruitment takes place, how that training takes place. so the details of that are not yet worked out.”
