President Barack Obama said Thursday the humanitarian crisis atop a barren hill in northern Iraq is over, eliminating the need for a risky U.S. rescue mission. But Iraqis elsewhere face a “dire” threat from an advancing Islamic army. Obama added that the U.S. will work with other governments to provide humanitarian relief “wherever we have capabilities” and can effectively reach those in need, even as U.S. warplanes continue a limited, defensive campaign of airstrikes.
