U.S. Not Working With Syria To Defeat ISIS

(Undated) -- The U.S. has no plans to work with Syria to defeat ISIS. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said today if the U.S. decides to strike ISIS targets in Syria, American officials won't ask for permission from the Syrian regime before making the move. Psaki insisted the Syrian government won't be able to stop the U.S. from doing what's best for America. Psaki added ISIS threats to "attack the homeland" are being taken very seriously.

A California man is being identified as one of many who died this past weekend fighting alongside ISIS in Syria. NBC News says the man's name was Douglas McCain. The 33 year old apparently had his American passport and about 800 dollars on him when his body was found. At least two other foreign fighters were also killed this past weekend.
