Rep. McKeon: Obama's ISIS strategy is not working

New U.S. airstrikes against ISIS include nine in Syria and three in Iraq, according to military officials as President Barack Obama met with high level military officials at the Pentagon Wednesday to discuss the U.S. strategy against ISIS.

The United States and its allies have made at least 271 airstrikes in Iraq and 116 in Syria.

The cost? More than $62 million for just the munitions alone.

The effect? Negligible, some say, particularly in Iraq as ISIS continues to gain ground.

Republican Congressman Buck McKeon is Chairman of House Armed Services Committee and he's OutFront.
