President Obama To Speak On Iraq Developments

Updated: Monday, August 11 2014, 03:54 PM CDT

President Barack Obama is planning to speak about the latest political developments in Iraq later this afternoon.

The White House said he would begin speaking at 3:45 p.m. Central Standard Time.

The crisis in Iraq comes as Obama is vacationing on Martha's Vineyard. He was already expected to address the situation in Iraq during a Democratic fundraiser on the island Monday night.

The U.S. military launched airstrikes against militant targets in Iraq for the fourth day in a row. Also, Iraq's new president has announced a new nominee for prime minister -- a move that marked a snub for incumbent Nouri al-Maliki.
