The latest report I can find is almost 12 hours old:
The United States said it “fully supports” Iraq’s new president, just hours after embattled Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki accused him of violating the constitution.
The U.S. rejects any effort to use coercion or manipulation in the process of choosing a new Iraqi leader, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, adding that the U.S. supports “building a national consensus and governing in an inclusive manner.”
Al-Maliki accused Fouad Massoum, who was named president last month, of neglecting to name a prime minister from the country’s largest parliamentary faction by Sunday’s deadline.
By the time IS/Caliphate finishes surrounding Baghdad, there might not be anyone left defending it.
