While it is not clear what President Obama will discuss this morning in his daily dictation; we suspect, on the heels of yesterday's gruesome American journalist beheading video from ISIS, that he will explain why 'humanitarian' airstrikes in Iraq will continue until morale improves. Perhaps he will re-dip his toe back into the ongoing Ferguson riots - noting his right hand man Holder is on the case? Or finally, perhaps he will opine on the surge in US stocks recently as proof America is beating Putin back? As a reminder, the President is back in Martha's Vineyard...
As AP reports, US official says American planes, drones did nearly a dozen airstrikes in Iraq since Tuesday.
