Obama Launches Air Strikes In Iraq

Three years after Obama announced that the war in Iraq is over the US military has begun air strikes to combat Islamic State, or ISIS violence against minority populations.

“Today I authorized two operations in Iraq,” Obama said, “targeted air strikes to protect our American personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water and facing almost certain death.”
