(CNN) – President Obama has put the nation on hold, telling Americans he will be receiving a range of options when it comes to U.S. involvement in Iraq and will keep them, and Congress, in the loop on what he decides.
He warned that those actions can't be taken overnight.
But Rep. Ed Royce, R-California, chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says there should be drones over Iraq right now.
"For some time now there's been a lot of pressure on the President to support an effort to suppress this al Qaeda group," said Royce. "Clearly we have a strategic interest in this."
