Obama on Mission in Iraq, Ferguson Shooting Probe Play

Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama speaks about the U.S. mission in Iraq and the outlook for a federal investigation into the Aug. 9 shooting death by police of an unarmed teenager that has sparked six days of protests in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri. Obama, speaking in Edgartown, Massachusetts, said that danger from radicals in Iraq still requires U.S. involvement even while the need for a rescue mission to save a trapped religious minority has been relieved. He also made a plea for calm in Ferguson and promised a full and independent investigation of the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting. (Source: Bloomberg)
