Islamic State goals as released by ISIS Twitter Feed.

(Worthy News)-- House lawmakers, concerned that President Obama's tweaks to his strategy against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria won't reverse the extremist group's recent gains, are putting pressure on the administration to do more, the Washington Examiner reported.

The House Armed Services Committee has summoned Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey to a hearing Wednesday to explain not just what they plan to do about the Islamic State, which many experts say has held its own against a nearly year-long effort to defeat it, but also about larger problems in the Middle East, such as the threat posed by Iran and the possibility of a region-wide sectarian conflict between Sunni and Shiite Muslims.

Armed Services Chairman Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, is among Obama's most vocal critics, saying the president is not taking the Islamic State threat seriously. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/house-wants-answers-on-obamas-isis-strategy/article/2566211" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
