President Obama on Friday urged Iraq’s leaders to “solve their problems” as they face Al Qaeda-inspired fighters overrunning cities and marching toward Baghdad, but said he was reviewing possible U.S. military responses.

The president reiterated that the U.S. would “not be sending U.S. troops back into combat.” But he said he’s asked his security team for options and is reviewing them.

The president plans to make brief remarks on the situation in Iraq shortly before noon on the South Lawn.
