The Common Ills Iraq snapshot
Iraq snapshot Tuesday, March 3, 2015. Chaos and violence continue, the Senate expresses concern over the cozy relationship between Iran and Iraq, Turkey sends weapons to Baghdad, the Secretary of Defense calls out a CENTCOM background briefing, and much more.
February 19th, "CENTCOM whispers about an upcoming assault on Mosul which may involve US troops." That's when an official with CENTCOM spoke on 'background' with the US press about the then-planned upcoming attack on Mosul which has been held by the Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL) since June.
