U.S. Presses Iraq Strikes, Republicans Criticize ‘ineffective’ Obama
The United States conducted a new round of air strikes on Sunday against Islamic State militants in Iraq while congressional Republicans slammed President Barack Obama’s intervention as ineffective and called for more aggressive military steps. Republican Representative Peter King of New York criticized Obama for insisting he will not send U.S. ground troops to combat Islamic State forces in Iraq, adding that the United States has been too timid in the crisis so far. Obama last week launched a campaign of U.S. air strikes and humanitarian air drops in northern Iraq, where militants are threatening religious minorities and encroaching on Arbil, the capital of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdish region.
