President Obama told reporters today that "we don't have a strategy yet" for dealing with ISIS:

"I don't want to put the cart before the horse," he said. "We don't have a strategy yet. I think what I've seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we're at than where we currently are. I think that's not just our assessment but the assessment of the military as well. We need to make sure we have clear plans, that we're developing them."
