President Barack Obama will outline plans this week for an expanded U.S. campaign to defeat violent Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a strategy that will also involve cooperation from allies in Europe, the Middle East and elsewhere.

Obama will launch an aggressive effort to build support for his strategy on Capitol Hill and with the American public. He'll meet with congressional leaders from both parties at the White House Tuesday, then deliver a speech detailing his strategy on Wednesday.
