Please join the Center for American Progress for an event on the fight to degrade and defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, and the effort to develop a capable and reliable partner in Syria to fight both ISIS and the Assad regime.
President Barack Obama’s announcement of a new U.S. strategy to combat ISIS in both Iraq and Syria will require a concerted effort to build a committed coalition of partners both regionally and locally to effectively defeat the extremist group. A critical challenge will be building an effective and reliable partner within the Syrian opposition who will be capable of combating both ISIS and the Assad regime.
