  1. Kerry: Iraq to Form Unity Government

    Bowing to U.S. and domestic pressure, Iraq’s Shiite-strong leadership is preparing to form a new, Sunni-inclusive unity government by the month’s end, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The move is a bid to shore up control in the face of the insurgent ISIS rebels marching almost unchecked toward Baghdad, home to seven million. Kerry said American military action required an Iraqi governance rethink, noting that the U.S. already has possible ISIS airstrike targets.
