Iraq crisis

Editor's note: A political stalemate seems to be underway in Iraq. A quick summary: Iraq's new president snubbed incumbent PM Nouri al-Maliki and asked the deputy parliament speaker, Haider al-Ibadi, to form the new government. Al-Maliki and his allies rejected the move, saying Al-Ibadi has no legitimacy. Vice President Biden called Iraqi President Fuad Masum and commended the move toward a new government. - Tom
