Iraqi security issues raised as ISIS pushes toward Baghdad

The insurgent group called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has reportedly taken over two northern Iraqi cities, Tikrit and Mosul, in the past week. There are concerns they could be headed toward Baghdad. Laith Saud is a visiting professor at DePaul’s Religious Studies department, joins us to discuss what the growing unrest means for the future of the country.
