Vice President Biden spoke today with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, Iraqi Speaker of Parliament Osama al-Nujaifi, and President of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region Masoud Barzani. The United States has been working to support the Iraqi government and all of Iraq's communities in their common fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The Vice President discussed the security situation, the U.S. assistance currently being provided to Iraqi security forces, and additional measures that could be taken under the Strategic Framework Agreement. In each call, the Vice President also stressed the need for national unity in responding to the ISIL threat against all Iraqi communities, for coordination on security issues going forward, and for moving forward with urgency in forming a new government under the constitution.
With Prime Minister Maliki, Vice President Biden emphasized the United States' solidarity with all Iraqi communities in the fight against ISIL, discussed the steps required to roll back the terrorists' advances, and made clear the central importance of embedding security measures within a broader strategy to enlist local communities in the fight against ISIL.

Don’t worry, Biden is Obama’s foreign policy ace...
Awwwww. Li’l Joey has learned how to dial a telephone. How cute. You’ll make a great President some day, Li’l Joey, yes you will.
This ought to go down well.
Yup. “Chains” Biden is well known for his skill at caving-in.
OK. So the US Embassy puts out a press release that pitifully attempts to make it look like the Administration is “doing something.” Biden is making calls and that means . . . . what? That he is on top of the situation? That the calls are going to stop the chaos? Its such BS.
When I first read the headline, I thought it stated that “Biden called Malaki, Nijaifi and the IKR President, ‘Barzini’”. Now THAT would have been interesting.
"I did not know until this very day that it was Barzani all along. Joey, the one who comes to you and offers you peace, he is the traitor."
