ISIS Within Striking Distance of Baghdad

Apparently, the Canadian Defense Secretary announced the arrival of 26 Canadian SF troops in Iraq which might bring their total to around 100 SF soldiers.

ISIS in America - threats against soldiers and their families are being taken seriously...according to Fox, at least by Military Intel.  HuffPo posted this yesterday.

And tertiary media is claiming that ISIS is an hour away from Baghdad.  That could mean anything...but it certainly is not good news.

Last, the FT has a decent write up of the US's "race against time" to get the Iraqis back on their feet and fighting.
