Obama, Congressional Leaders to Meet on Tuesday on ISIS

Saturday, 06 Sep 2014 04:49 PM

President Barack Obama plans to meet with congressional leaders at the White House Tuesday — with the threat posed by Islamic State militants as a likely topic of discussion.

Lawmakers return Monday from a five-week recess.

Obama is just back from a NATO summit in Wales, where the U.S. and nine allies agreed to take on the militants because of the threat they pose to member countries.

Members of Congress have pressed Obama for a plan to combat the group, which has beheaded two American journalists in retaliation for U.S. military airstrikes against its targets inside Iraq.

The administration is cobbling together a coalition of nations to do the job.

White House and congressional aides confirmed the meeting on condition of anonymity because it had not been formally announced.
