 Nato members will give support to the opposition to ISIS. They will give support with training, medical, weapons. It has to be a joint effort with the people there. They need more support to roust them out. Like we supported the Afgans, and their own people routed them out. ISIS is hard to contain, yet we and with the unanimous support from our Nato allies, will systematically go after them. Other members of Nato will supply support as well. The US won't do it alone, and the people of Iraq will have to step forward more. Hoping for support from Sunnis and tribes. They have to stand up. Nato will protect Ukraine. Sanctions against Russia helped with the agreement recently made with the Ukraine. Agreement wouldn't of happened except for sanctions. Nato members will be making a plan for a RAPID RESPONSE plan. All military indo, to be updated, and shared. Plan to be made out, in the coming weeks. He was asked about immigration issues. He said, in the Senate, bi-partisan agreement. In the house, bill has been sat on my the republicans. ( He said that twice) then he proceeded to say, it was wrong, and if the bill is not passed, and repeatedly sat on, he will use his executive powers to the legal limit he can to get action on this immigrant issue, so people who have been here for years can start paying taxes, and living their lives.. In fact, he was going to read up on it, on his plane flight after this conference........( I kid you not, he said he was going to read up on the immigration issue, on the plane after this!)

To be fair, there is a lot of new information on each topic every day, from immigration to the Middle East, to Ebola. At least he's planning to do his research. But, shouldn't he have received updates from his advisors on a regular basis?

I missed it, Obama should have done his research a long time ago instead of taking a crash course. Maybe those 2 American jouralists would still be alive as well as many innocent men, women and children. smh

 When asked about immigration, by a reporter at the end, he did say he had been busy with .....I can't remember exactly. Probably ISIS or Nato. Really can't remember the exact words.  You would think he would of gotten updates from advisors sure......just so much stuff going on.

Yeah; the President's responsible for every crime committed by other people against Americans both here and abroad.

He was no more responsible for those murders than Bush was for 911, mmmkay?

 Watch the film clips and the summery on the news channels. Lots of commentary will come out of this. At least with the Nato summit, all are going to give support for defeating ISIS, and the US won't be going in alone. He did say the US has done 100 airstrikes over there, and troops have been deployed to keep American citizens safe.......and to protect American intrests. The Iraqis themselves, are the ones that will ultimately have to rout ISIS out.

I wasn't a huge supporter of Bush, we're talking about Obama, the here and now.

Exactly. I think this is one time where Obama got failed, rather than the other way around. He dropped the ball, definitely, but his advisors should have stepped up, too.

I've been focusing my own research more on Ebola, since it is a direct threat to my immediate family. I need to do more reading on what's going on outside Africa.
