White House: No Specific End Date For Airstrikes In Iraq

(Washington, DC) -- President Obama is not setting any specific end date for U.S. military strikes in Iraq. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said today the president "has not laid out a specific end date", explaining it will depend on the security situation there. Two U.S. Navy fighter jets dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on an ISIS artillery target near Erbil in northern Iraq. President Obama authorized targeted airstrikes against ISIS militants to protect U.S. personnel and facilities.
