The  Islamic State group 's ferocious attack on Paris will be met with "intensification" of the U.S.-led fight against the terror group,  President Obama  said Monday, but it will not fundamentally alter his strategy nor his reluctance to put more U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria.

On Monday, the Truman  Carrier Strike Group  left  Norfolk, Va. , for the  Mediterranean Sea , as part of a pre-scheduled deployment. Its five ships include the cruiser  Anzio and destroyers Bulkeley, Gravely and Gonzalez. Officials expedited the group's departure to minimize the duration commanders fighting ISIS will be without a sea-based strike option.
