This photo taken Dec. 21, 2012 photo Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Cal., chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, speaking at a Capitol Hill news conference in Washington. Sunday in Washington, Aug. 31, 2014, Feinstein said President Barack Obama may be "too cautious" in his approach to dealing with Islamic State militants. Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" she said that the Defense and State departments have been putting together a response to the threat, and has seen nothing to compare to the viciousness of the militants who have overrun large portions of Iraq, killed civilians and beheaded American journalist James Foley. Feinstein says the Islamic State group has financing, military structure and weapons unlike any other militants and called them "extraordinarily dangerous." (AP Photo/Ann Heisenfelt, File) FILE - This March 25, 2014 file photo shows House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., leaving a press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. The chairs of both the House and Senate intelligence committees prodded President Barack Obama on Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014, to take decisive action against the growing threats from Islamic State militants on U.S. soil. "His foreign policy is in absolute free-fall," Rogers said of President Barack Obama. In a separate interview Sunday California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein who heads the Senate intelligence panel said Obama efforts to combat Islamic state group are perhaps "too cautious." "This is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous," she said. "And they'll kill with abandon."  (AP Photo/J.

The city medical examiner ruled that Garner, 43, died as a result of a police chokehold during an attempted arrest. Details may differ, circumstances of their deaths may remain unknown, but the outrage that erupted after the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the nation.
