Nuri Al-Maliki spent decades in exile before the fall of Saddam Hussein. Since taking office in 2006, Prime Minister Maliki has enjoyed the praise and support of both President Bush and President Obama. Now he is in the middle of a crisis that could tear Iraq apart. Randi Kaye has his story.
Anderson looks into how Prime Minister Maliki's actions are motivating Sunni groups to back ISIS. He spoke with Ken Pollack, a Senior Fellow at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy, along with James Jeffrey, a former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq.
