Obama Thinking About Bombing Iraq Some More

No final decision has been made.


President Obama is considering options to assist trapped minorities in Iraq, including possible airstrikes and airdrops of food and medicine, a government official said.

The administration has been mulling options for weeks, but the issue has come to a head with a mounting humanitarian catastrophe in northern Iraq where the Yazidis, a small religious minority, are trapped on a mountain top surrounded by Islamic militants.

The source asked not to be named since he was not authorized to speak about the issue. No final decision has been made.
