Press reports that US has conducted airstrikes in Iraq completely false. No such action taken.

According to the Times, Kurdish television reported the bombings Thursday night.
ABC News reported that the U.S. is sending cargo planes with humanitarian supplies to drop to Iraqi citizens trapped in the towns seized by the insurgents.
The Pentagon also denied the reports of air drops.
