September 22, 2014 – US airstrikes on approximately 20 ISIS targets have begun, Pentagon officials told ABC News.

From the report:

“I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL [ISIS] terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles,” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said.
“Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time,” Kirby said. “The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief.”

Voices of Liberty tweeted live during President Obama’s recent speech announcing the expanded effort to “eradicate” and “degrade and destroy” ISIS in Syria and beyond.
