WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Tuesday he hoped President Barack Obama would offer a plan for defeating Islamic State in his final State of the Union address.

“Americans are so anxious about their security,” Ryan told reporters, saying he wanted to see Obama propose “a comprehensive plan to defeat ISIS,” using an acronym for Islamic State.
