President Obama will meet with top military leaders on Tuesday to hash out details of the U.S.-led strategy to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The meeting, which will include defense chiefs from some 20 nations as well as top U.S. military leaders, is meant to demonstrate Obama’s commitment to defeating the terrorist group, which has made recent gains.
