By Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama could ask the U.S. Congress in coming weeks to approve new funds for airstrikes against Islamic State targets, according to a congressional aide, following the militants’ beheading of an American journalist and activities in Iraq. A Senate Democratic aide on Friday said the Obama administration could detail by early to mid-September the amount of additional money it wants for the military operations, although the aide did not estimate the size of the possible funding request. The administration has indicated it does not want to put combat troops into the region, although it has said it is evaluating all options on how to deal with Syria.
