Kerry Arrives in Cairo on Trip to Push for New Iraqi Government

CAIRO — Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Cairo on Sunday morning on the first leg of a trip that is intended to hasten the formation of a cross-sectarian government in Iraq.

In his swing through Middle East capitals, Mr. Kerry plans to send two messages on Iraq. One is that Arab states should use their influence with Iraqi politicians and prod them to quickly form an inclusive government.

Another is that they should crack down on funding to the Sunni militants in the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The group is largely self-sustaining because of success in extortion and its plundering of banks in Mosul, Iraq. But some funding “has flowed into Iraq from its neighbors,” said a senior official on Mr. Kerry’s plane.

“That does not mean that it’s the result of an official government policy in many, if not most, cases,” the official added. “But it does mean that some of these governments can do more to stop some of that facilitation.” (cont.) at link:

Do they get to "democratically" elect another government, hand picked by the US?

The US Dept. of State under Obama has presided over the manipulation to rid Egypt of a pro-US govt., the messes in Libya and Syria and now in Iraq.

Obama, Hillary and Kerry can't get anything right.

Except it is now Obama-Kerry-Hagel running things and that is several degrees worse.  When the Hildebeest was SecState Bob Gates and Leon Panetta were SecDef, and whether you agree with them politically or not, both are magnitudes more qualified for the job than Chuckie Hagel is, who is not qualified to open a can of dog food unsupervised, in my view.....

Ahem.... Mr. Kerry, you're a little late.

It looks like large parts of Iraq -already have- a "new government"...
