    What power does this guy have over these people that'll publicly torture the facts like this in the news media?
    This woman is just 33 years old, which raises the question of where she learned to lie so professionally at such an early age? Is this era the death of honesty in public life, where telling a lie well is considered to be a career accomplishment and accepted as such by the public?

He would rather roll the proverbial dice on preserving Shia dominance than accept any formula that would allow all of Iraq's peoples full political participation.
    His military laid down their arms, surrendered in the north, and now ISIS is moving towards Baghdad, and his people are going to defend Baghdad?

    sheesh that guy needs to get a clue.

    Must be, and makes sense that he had as well, but I don't recall specifically this level of fact torturing / spinning.

    I admit, I am now more engaged and watching for it than I was then.

    Actually he is probably correct about that. Baghdad would be much more defended than Mosul.

    What? How in the world is this a very different threat than what we saw before? It is literally the exact same group, they just changed the acronym.

    To be fair to this woman, she's in an impossible position, trying to defend a feckless and uninvolved administration.

    But this administration is getting to the point where they don't even try to lie well.

    She should dye her hair. Being put in that impossible position strengthens the blond joke arena.

    She is not in an impossible position, she can tell the truth. But telling the the truth appears to be a mark of politically naivety these days.

    She would be fired if she told the truth. That's what books are for, after she leaves.
