(KPLR) – President Obama asked Congress for authority to declare war again on Islamic State Wednesday, triggering a wave of reaction from members of the Bosnian community in the St. Louis area. More than 70,000 Bosnians live here, the largest population outside of Europe. Three members of the Bosnian community in the Gateway City area were recently arrested and charged with supporting ISIS. Two appeared in federal court Wednesday to answer to the charges. Tonight on The Pulse of St. Louis, we'll learn more about ISIS, whether it poses a threat to the United States, and Obama's efforts to root out the terrorist organization.
