Obama speaks from White House on growing ISIS threat

Updated: Friday, August 29, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - As U.S. air strikes continue in northern Iraq, President Obama spoke at the White House about the growing ISIS threat.

He thinks joining forces with regional partners to combat the group is the best strategy.

"We're going to have to do that with other partners," the President said. "And particularly Sunni partners, because part of the goal here is to make sure that Sunnis, both in Syria and in Iraq, feel as if they've got an investment in a government that actually functions."

President Obama believes the violence in Syria has created a safe haven for Islamic militants.

He's asked Secretary of State John Kerry to the region to prepare a range of options.
