President Obama Orders Aid, Airstrike If Needed In Iraq

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the U.S. military will carry out limited military strikes if necessary against Islamic extremists threatening to kill thousands of religious minorities trapped on a mountain in northern Iraq.

Obama says the U.S. has already started an airdrop of food, water and supplies to those trapped. President Obama says the U.S. "can't turn a blind eye" against potential genocides. But he said the U.S. won't send combat troops to Iraq.
