Pres. Obama looks to build support for Syrian strikes

Updated: Monday, September 1, 2014

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - President Obama is getting ready to head to Europe Tuesday.

He'll be consulting with allies about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the ISIS takeover in Iraq and Syria.

Right now, European leaders are considering more sanctions against Russia.

In Iraq, the U.S. expanded airstrikes against ISIS targets over the weekend, in order to drive the Sunni militants back from the town of Amirli.

President Obama sent a letter to Congress officially notifying lawmakers about U.S. military action in Iraq, but for some on Capitol Hill, the President isn't going far enough.

The White House plans to send Secretary of State John Kerry to the Middle East to build support for strikes in Syria.
