President Obama has approved a mission to to drop humanitarian aid in Iraq for the 40,000 or so religious minorities stranded on a mountaintop in the country's north after Islamic militants forced them to flee, senior U.S. officials told Fox News Thursday night.
However, the officials said the air drops had not yet begun.
If all goes well, they said, the mission will be completed following a single pass of U.S. military cargo jets. The officials did not disclose the planes' starting point due to host nation sensitivities.
It was possible the mission also could include air strikes to protect those delivering the aid and dissuade militants from stealing the supplies.

how about bombing the perverted muzzies and while you’re doing that, set helicoptors down to pick these people up....we’ll take them here in America.....
While I agree with attempting to deliver these humanitarian supplies, I have a bad feeling about this.
Obama creates a disaster then tries to get credit for doing a small cleanup on aisle 5.
Anything Obama touches turns to dung. Then he wants applause for waiting a year or two, then getting some paper towels and picking up a portion of that dung.
The Commander & Chief version of voting 'present'.
IPhone and obamacare waivers?
What the hell good are they gonna do?
If that’s what passes for humanitarian these days
Air drop went in just now
Well I guess the way this administration thinks its better to have your head chopped off if you at least had something to eat before they do it. You might say we are serving their last meals.
Kindly leave YOUR address for where they can be taken. Leave the rest of "America" out of this.
——set helicoptors down to pick these people up....well take them here in America.....-——
Way easier said than done.....you are talking about picking up literally thousands of people in aircraft that are sitting ducks to missile fire....
Better yet drop them loads of small arms and weapons to fight these worthless scum sucking dog feces...
The perverted muzzies may just mix with the people stuck on the mountain and use them as human shields, as can be expected from these honorable bearded barbarians, which will make the job of the “good guys” even more difficult.
0bama’s going to stop humanitarian aid?
I think obama wants to give the Christian their last meal.

Give him a parachute and send him at the same time.
You tapped into CIA live feeds?
I hate C130s, shake the living begeeses out of ya..
They should send PUFFs instead
The US should bomb the Islamic State, gain control of the Mosul Dam, and arm our friends the Kurdish Peshmerga to defend the Kurds, Christians, Yazidis and other religious minorities. Forget a united Iraq. The Kurds should have their own nation.
Forget about “Islamic Democracy” and the “Arab Spring”. That has led to Gaza, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the terrorist uprisings in Syria and Libya. Rule by Kings and more secular military dictators has been better for most Arabs, and particularly non-Salafist minorities.
The article does not explicitly say, but implies, that the refugees are Christians. Notably, the article does not clarify what the “humanitarian aid” actually is. If the minorities are Christian, I’m guessing that the “aid” will end up being several Qurans, and nothing more. If the minorities are Shiites or anti-ISIS Sunnis, the “aid” will probably include armaments.
I’m not sure whether Soetoro prefers the Sunnis or the Shiites (perhaps he prefers both), but I do know that he has a pathological hatred of Christians. If he directly approved this mission, he did so because he thinks it will benefit the Islamic faction of his choosing.
I agree with your strategy 100%
Most of it will “accidentally” drop into the hands of ISIS.
Aside from that, Christian in this case does not mean what the media would like you to believe. It is “not Jewish, and not Muslim.”
I hope those people are armed out the whaazoo.
Will the food the US drops be approved by Michelle..
The only headline I want to see in regard to this clown of a president is “ President to Wipe Out ISIS “.
This is the biggest group of monsters running around the Middle East.
Along with at least a billion hollow point bullets - at least would be put to a good cause.
AMEN... agreeing with you in prayer that our crews will return home safe and the aid will be delivered to those in need.
Why did I think WKRP?
“As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly...”
“....well take them here in America.....”
Knock it off.
Think about what you said before you respond to my statement.
Drop M4’s, ammo, and claymores.
And he’s announcing this ahead of time because? What a moron.
...but this ISIS needs to be destroyed, My God they are beheading children.
