Obama to Give Speech Wednesday on Islamic State

Sunday, 07 Sep 2014 09:06 AM

President Barack Obama says he's ready to begin laying out a strategy to defeat Islamic State militants in the Middle East.

On Tuesday, he'll meet with congressional leaders at the White House to discuss the threat. And he'll give a speech on Wednesday, the eve of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Obama disclosed his plans during an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press."

Obama says he wants Americans to understand the nature of the threat and how their government is going to deal with it.

In the interview, Obama restated his opposition to sending U.S. ground troops to the region to engage in direct combat with the militants.

The U.S. military has conducted more than 130 airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq in the past month.
