According to ABC News, Obama approved U.S military surveillance flights over Syria to track the Islamic militant group ISIS. Obama warned ISIS that the killers of American journalist James Foley will be hunted down. Foley was beheaded allegedly in retaliation for the U.S. air campaign, and after a $100 million ransom demand was rebuffed.

“Our message to anyone who harms our people is simple. America does not forget, our reach is long, we are patient, justice will be done,” he said. “We have proved time and time again we will do what’s necessary to capture those who harm Americans -- to go after those who harm Americans. And we’ll continue to take direct action where needed to protect our people and to defend our homeland.”
