Mr Obama will speak from the White House during the prime-time evening television hour in an effort to reach a maximum audience as he makes the case for returning to war in the Middle East.
Speaking on the eve of the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the President is expected to argue that Syria under ISIS control would be “a safe haven” for terrorists who could one day strike America.
It also remains unclear if or when the Western allies – most likely Britain, Australia and France – would be asked to join in airstrikes against ISIS.
Wednesday’s speech comes exactly one year after Mr. Obama addressed the nation during prime-time when the US was weighing strikes against the Assad regime in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed 1,400 people in a Damascus suburb.
