Why Obama Should Get Congress to Back the Fight Against the Islamic State

In Foreign Policy, AHS speaker and University of Texas-Austin faculty adviser William Inboden addresses the Obama administration's accelerating campaign of airstrikes against the Islamic State:

"To their credit, the administration is now beginning to approach the IS threat with the gravity it deserves. Doing so will mean marshalling domestic and international support for the sustained campaign that will be needed to defeat IS, and requesting that Congress grant a new authorization to use military force is the most important first step in this direction."
