Washington: US President Barack Obama formally notified Congress on Sunday that he had authorized "limited" airstrikes in Iraq to help security forces, which retook the country's largest dam earlier from militants. National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said the airstrikes were consistent with the War Powers Resolution, which requires congressional approval before the president can launch the country into war.
