The United States will not coordinate air attacks on ISIS with Syria but will seek to ensure their forces do not come into conflict, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview aired Sunday.Kerry, who spoke Saturday in Cairo before news of the latest ISIS beheading of a Western hostage, British aid worker David Haines, insisted "all bases are covered" for a U.S.-led campaign against the militant group.He said U.S. allies in the Middle East and beyond were ready to help, some even offering troops on the ground and others to conduct airstrikes alongside the United States if necessary.Kerry acknowledged that airstrikes alone would not be sufficient to defeat ISIS, which has overrun swaths of Iraq and Syria, but reiterated that Washington would not put U.S. troops on the ground.
