Iraqi Military Shares ISIS Intel with Russia

The Iraqi military announced Sunday that it had agreed to share intelligence about the Islamic State with Russia, the Syrian government and Iran, an agreement that caught the Obama administration off guard. The Iraqi military said in a statement that the new agreement was necessary because thousands of volunteers who have joined the Islamic State have come from Russia.

The U.S. is being pressed to work with Russia against ISIS, while it quarrels over what is happening over in the Ukraine. Meanwhile, France launched airstrikes over Syria against ISIS on Sunday.
