No Timetable

Before heading off to Martha's Vineyard on Aug. 9, Obama said that there is no timetable for the airstrikes in Iraq and warned that it could be a "long-term project." He also reiterated that he has no plans to put troops on the ground there. The president announced that Britain and France will join the humanitarian effort but said that “only Iraqis can ensure the security and stability of Iraq.”
