President Barack Obama said Thursday it's premature to go to Congress to authorize a strategy to defeat ISIS because he doesn't have one yet. "We don't have a strategy yet," Obama told reporters after being asked about striking ISIS in Syria, saying he didn't want to "put the cart before the horse."
