Republicans Call for More Aggressive Action Against IS


Republican lawmakers on Sunday called for more aggressive U.S. action to defeat the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq, accusing President Barack Obama of policies that have failed to thwart potential new threats on U.S. soil, according to Reuters.

Representative Mike Rogers, Republican chairman of the House of Representative Intelligence Committee, urged the administration to work with Arab partners on robust steps to disrupt the operations of the group, which has declared an Islamic caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria it captured.
