“The president’s authorization of airstrikes is appropriate, but like many Americans, I am dismayed by the ongoing absence of a strategy for countering the grave threat ISIS poses to the region,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement. “Vital national interests are at stake, yet the White House has remained disengaged despite warnings from Iraqi leaders, Congress, and even members of its own administration." The Ohio Republican said he's willing to work with Obama if he comes up with a long-term strategy, "one that defines success as completing our mission, not keeping political promises — and he needs to build the public and congressional support to sustain it."
