Most of us spend time selecting a beautiful ribbon and wrapping paper for a loved one’s present. Sure, the paper ends up in the recycling, but it will have fulfilled its purpose to build excitement about the treasures inside.

Afternoon Headlines for Wednesday, September 17, 2014

“AP Interview: Iraq premier says no foreign troops”

“In his first interview with foreign media since taking office on Sept. 8, Haider al-Abadi told The Associated Press that the U.S. aerial campaign currently targeting the militants who have overrun much of northern and western Iraq has helped efforts to roll back the Sunni extremists. He also urged the international community to go after the group in neighboring Syria, saying the battle will prove endless unless the militants are wiped out there as well.”

Washington Post

“China sees jihadi inspiration coming from abroad by way of the Web”

“Hasan exemplified China’s great fear — that a long-running nationalist insurgency in Xinjiang was morphing into a terrorist movement inspired by a foreign brand of radical Islam, and that domestic Uighurs were taking their cue from fellow Uighur extremists schooled in the madrassas of Pakistan and on the battlefields of Afghanistan.”


“Exclusive: Syria reveals more chemical weapons facilities to watchdog – sources”

“Syria has revealed a previously undeclared research and development facility and a laboratory to produce the poison ricin to the global chemical weapons watchdog, diplomatic sources told Reuters. Syria has detailed three new facilities to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as part of an ongoing review of the state’s toxic arsenal, three sources said.”

Washington Post

“The rapidly expanding King fire is threatening more than 1,600 homes in Northern California”

“The King fire, in a forested area east of Sacramento, spread rapidly overnight as it threatened 1,632 homes. The fire was 12,780 acres on Tuesday night, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. But by Wednesday morning, Cal Fire reported that the blaze had grown to 18,544 acres and was 5 percent contained.”


“South Sudan won’t expel foreign workers”

“The government in war-torn South Sudan said Wednesday it will not be expelling any foreign workers, reversing a policy announcement made the previous day that caused a storm of protests from aid agencies and neighboring countries.”


“After Obama speech, Islamic State wins new recruits in Syria – monitor”

“Islamic State has won new recruits in Syria since President Barack Obama signaled last week that air strikes against the group will be expanded from Iraq to its strongholds in northern and eastern Syria, a group monitoring the war said on Wednesday.”

Associated Press

“Obama reaffirms opposition to U.S. combat in Iraq”

“Ukrainian President Poroshenko will visit White House, Congress to seek more aid”

“Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will arrive in Washington on Thursday with a simple request: more economic and military aid for a nation that is reeling from an insurgency in the east. But amid concerns about Ukraine’s commitment to anticorruption efforts and Western caution about escalating a military conflict with Russia, it remained far from clear that Ukraine’s leader would leave Washington with a substantial new pledge of support. The Ukrainian candy magnate-turned-politician plans to talk with President Obama at the White House and will address a joint meeting of Congress.”
