Obama Authorizes Iraq Air Strikes

He vowed anew not to put American combat troops back on the ground in Iraq and said there was no U.S. military solution to the crisis.

“Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, `There is no one coming to help.’ Well, today, America is coming to help,” Obama said. “We’re also consulting with other countries — and the United Nations — who have called for action to address this humanitarian crisis.” The announcements reflected the deepest American engagement in Iraq since U.S. troops withdrew in late 2011 after nearly a decade of war.
