'We Need More,' Iraqi PM Tells President Obama

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi made an in-person appeal to President Barack Obama today for more help defeating ISIS, the Sunni-led militant group that swept across Iraq and Syria last summer.

Al-Abadi credits an increase in U.S. airstrikes, weapons deliveries and training with helping to roll back ISIS forces, but says he needs greater support from the international coalition to “finish” them.

NPR’s Greg Myre joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details.
