Quotes

..."Sure thing boss," says Mr. McDonough, who picks up the phone and calls up the Director of the US Secret Service, Julia Pierson. "Julia dear, please go personally and withdraw two hundred million dollars from the Treasury. President needs it" says Mr. McDonough. "Uh, okay sir. You got it," says Director Pierson, who marches over and gets the cash, and delivers it to Mr. McDonough
...Zainab Hawa Bangura and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq Nickolay Mladenov issued a joint statement from Baghdad: "We are gravely concerned by continued reports of acts of violence, including sexual violence against women and teenage girls and boys belonging to Iraqi minorities... Atrocious accounts on the abduction and detention of Yazidi, Christian, as well as Turkomen and Shabak women, girls and boys, and reports of savage rapes, are reaching us in an alarming manner... We condemn, in the strongest terms, the explicit targeting of women and children and the barbaric acts the 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' has perpetrated on minorities in areas under its control, and we remind all armed groups that acts of sexual violence are grave human rights violations that can be considered as war crimes and crimes against humanity." The statement warned that some 1,500 Yazidis and Christians may have been forced into sexual slavery. ( Jurist , United Nations Iraq )
The group of about 20 personnel, who were accompanied by members of USAID, found that there were "far fewer Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar than previously feared, in part because of the success of humanitarian air drops, air strikes on ISIL targets, the efforts of the Peshmerga and the ability of thousands of Yazidis to evacuate from the mountain each night over the last several days" said Rear Admiral John Kirby, a Defense Department spokesman, in a statement Wednesday
Rhodes noted that Obama had repeatedly ruled out "reintroducing U S forces into combat on the ground in Iraq." But he added: "There are a variety of ways in which we can support the safe removal of those people from the mountain."
