Obama's Strategy for ISIS: Troops, Drones or Diplomacy? (part 2)

It's the second internet-posted beheading of a US journalist in less than a month. As with James Foley, Steven Sotloff's gruesome murder was accompanied by the same message of defiance aimed squarely at the US, forcing President Barack Obama into a war he thought he left behind for good in 2011. François Picard and his panel discuss what's next for Washington.

Programme prepared and produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Dheepthika Laurent and Chris Davis.

By François PICARD
