ISIS or ISIL?: “Meet the Press” Talks Obama's Strategy

President Barack Obama will reveal his strategy against Islamic militant group ISIS in a prime-time address on Wednesday. On Sunday's "Meet the Press," a roundtable discussion dissected Obama's potential strategy and motives when handling ISIS -- or ISIL as the president refers to it. "The last ‘L’ they don’t want to have stand for Syria,” said moderator Chuck Todd when referring to the Obama administration's hesitance to expand war efforts to Syria. ISIL stands for the “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant,” the Levant meaning a larger area of the Middle East, including Lebanon and Jordan in addition to Syria.
