Twenty-four authoritative reports and documents in this unique ebook provide a comprehensive review from renowned experts and government sources of all aspects of the current Iraq crisis involving the al-Qaeda related terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), variously known as Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), and AQI. The group - headed by terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - is seizing substantial territory in Iraq as it attempts to fulfill its ambition of forming the first terrorist Islamic state. Terrorism experts are concerned that the group will pose a serious threat to American interests and security. There is also substantial information and commentary about the crisis in Syria, Iran's influence on Iraq, Turkish influence in the Levant, intelligence assessments, histories of the Iraq conflict and politics, and much more about this critical issue. Contents: 2014 Iraq in Crisis * The Resurgence of Al-Qaeda in Iraq * Terrorist Groups in Syria * Syria Hearing - U.S. Senate, Committee on Foreign Relations * Is Al-Qaeda Winning? Grading the Administration's Counterterrorism Policy * Al-Qaeda's Resurgence in Iraq: A Threat to U.S. Interests * Syria After Geneva: Next Steps for U.S. Policy * Syria Spillover: The Growing Threat Of Terrorism and Sectarianism in the Middle East * Al-Qaeda's Road to Damascus?

It should be clear that ISIL is not only a threat to the stability of Iraq, but a threat to the entire region. This growing threat exemplifies the need for Iraqis from all communities to work together to confront this common enemy and isolate these militant groups from the broader population. The United States stands with the Iraqi people and the people of Ninewa and Anbar now confronting this urgent threat. We will continue to work closely with Iraqi political and security leaders on a holistic approach to diminish ISIL’s capacity and ability to operate within Iraq’s borders. Our assistance enables Iraq to combat ISIL on the front lines, where hundreds of Iraqi security force personnel have been killed and injured in that fight this year.
