ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Reaction to President Obama's move to seek Congressional authority to declare war against ISIS has been strong and swift. Members of the Bosnian community support the move saying something must be done to stop ISIS not only because of the threat is poses to the Middle East, but to the U.S., too.
