President Barack Obama said on Thursday he has asked officials to prepare a range of U.S. military options for confronting Islamic State militants in Syria but said his strategy is still being developed. At a news conference, Obama cautioned against speculation that he was on the brink of a decision to expand air strikes against Islamic State beyond targets already being hit in Iraq by U.S. aerial attacks, saying "I don't want to put the cart before the horse."
