(CNN) - There was no suggestion in President Barack Obama's remarks Wednesday about the terrorist beheading of an American journalist that the United States was backing down in its airstrikes in Iraq.
The President blasted ISIS and said that the world was "appalled" by the videotaped execution of James Foley that surfaced Tuesday.
Around that time came word that U.S. military forces struck ISIS in Iraq by employing fighter, remotely piloted and attack aircraft, unleashing 14 airstrikes near Mosul Dam.
