Obama announces new policy to counter ISIS

Last night President Obama addressed the nation and outlined his strategy to “degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL.” It includes authorizing airstrikes inside Syria and providing additional training and military assistance to the Syrian opposition. We’ll take a look at how the policy changes will impact people inside Syria and ask whether it addresses some of the root causes of the conflict with Dr. Zaher Sahloul, president of the Syrian American Medical Society.
