Obama Authorizes Limited Airstrikes In Iraq: ‘we Cannot Turn A Blind Eye’ | Washingtonexaminer.com

Obama was swept into office in 2008 in part because of his promises to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and limit U.S. military intervention abroad. Obama had delayed any direct military action in the Iraqi crisis, when ISIS first http://www.obamastudentloanforgiveness.net began seizing some of the countrys major cities. But the developments over the last few days, when 40,000 people became trapped on Mt. Sinjar and were dying in the heat, pushed Obama into action.

“We don’t want to see this trend grow,” Obama said at a news conference. “That kind of herd mentality is something we want to avoid, so we want to move quickly, as quickly as possible.” Obama made the comments in a wide-ranging news conference at the conclusion of the U.S-Africa Summit in Washington, where he hosted dozens of African leaders to discuss trade, business opportunities and security issues. Obama said the U.S. Congress would need to pass legislation to stop the use of tax inversions entirely, but in the meantime, he plans to look for ways to discourage them. “It’s not fair. It’s not right,” Obama said.

Even so, he outlined a rationale for airstrikes if the Islamic State militants advance on American troops in the northern city of Erbil and the U.S. consulate there. The troops were sent to Iraq this year as part of the White House response to the extremist group’s swift movement across the border with Syria and into Iraq. “When the lives of American citizens are at risk, we will take action,” Obama said. “That’s my responsibility as commander in chief.” He said he had also authorized the use of targeted military strikes if necessary to help the Iraqi security forces protect civilians.
