US Military Leaders Set Strategies to Defeat Islamic State Group

PentagonDefense Secretary Ashton Carter and U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford Jr. have met with other military commanders to discuss strategies on how to conquer the Islamic State organization, DoD News reported Thursday.

Terri Moon Cronk writes Carter, Dunford, U.S. Central Command head U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin III and U.S. Special Operations Command chief Gen. Joseph Votel met at Centcom to set the course on furthering pressure on ISIS through anti-ISIL campaigns.

The U.S. military plans to destroy ISIS’ two power centers, counter the group’s worldwide campaign for support and secure the homeland, according to the report.

Carter told a conference, President Barack Obama also approved new military actions after he consulted with the four military leaders, DoD News reports.

The secretary told reporters the latest military actions “have allowed us to accelerate the campaign, gather momentum, and pressure ISIL in Iraq and Syria on more fronts than at any other point in the campaign,” DoD News reports.
