WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis has directed the Pentagon to hunt more overall spending to treat shortfalls and "new requirements" necessary to accelerate the campaign against Islamic State, according to a memo released on Wednesday.

In addition for the proposed 2019 fiscal year budget amendment request, Mattis also requested a broader budget and strategy review waiting for future years but did not offer estimates as part of his guidance towards Dod, the Pentagon memo said.
