Iraq requests US airstrike; kidnapped workers safe

President Obama told congressional leaders that he will keep them abreast of any action in Iraq, but as part of the War Powers Resolution, he has powers to use the US military without the consent of Congress. They only have to be notified within 48 hours of using the armed forces. The Iraq government has formally requested US air strikes on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria [ISIS], who are within striking distance of Baghdad. The 40 Indian workers with Tariq Noor al Huda who were kidnapped are safe, according to Indian foreign ministry spokesperson. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj informed that all possible measures will be taken to secure their release.
