President Obama Wants Authorization For Military Force Against ISIS

President Obama is asking Congress to formally authorize the use of military force against the self-declared Islamic State and associated forces. The U.S. is already leading air campaigns against ISIS, but the war power bill would formally approve of those missions against the extremist group. It would also limit the military from engaging in “enduring offensive ground operations.”
