During his speech at the G20 summit, Obama drops an unexpected name in discussing his controversial approach to the Islamic State, which plays down the group’s religious affiliation:

Obama also says it is hard to confront the group, because of its nonconventional tactics.

He says it is wrong, and playing into IS’s hands, to buy into the group’s idea of itself as a state.

“That’s not what’s going on here. These are killers,” he says, according to Reuters. “It’s not their sophistication or the particular weaponry they possess but it is the ideology that they carry with them and their willingness to die.”
