President Barack Obama said key NATO allies stood ready to join the United States in military action to defeat ISIS militants in Iraq as he vowed to "take out" the leaders of a movement he said was a major threat to the West.Obama said that Washington would hunt down and dismantle the organization, which has seized swaths of Iraq and Syria, in the same way it had tackled Al-Qaeda since the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States and was doing to Al-Shabab in Somalia. Obama drew criticism last week for saying he had not yet developed a strategy for confronting ISIS in Syria, which has provoked public outrage in the West with the gruesome beheading two U.S. journalists.European officials said Cameron and Hollande, the leaders of Europe's main military powers, told Obama in private meetings that Washington had to do more than simply conduct airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq and needed an overall strategy.Obama said Kerry would visit the Middle East to help build a broad-based coalition to tackle the militants.
