Obama's plan to combat ISIS

Just days after saying the U.S. does not have a complete strategy to fight ISIS, the New York Times is reporting that the Obama administration plans to announce it will boost the flow of training and weapons to Iraq. This includes plans for a new military base in Anbar Province and 450 additional military trainers to help Iraqi forces retake Ramadi. Juan Cole, professor of history at the University of Michigan and author most recently of The New Arabs: How the Millennial Generation is Changing the Middle East, joins us to discuss the new strategy.
