State Department: U.S. Does Not Recognize Kurdistan Independence Vote

ERBIL, IRAQ - SEPTEMBER 22: Supporters wave flags and chant slogans inside the Erbil Stadium while waiting to hear Kurdish President Masoud Barzani speak during a rally for the upcoming referendum for independence of Kurdistan on September 22, 2017 in Erbil, Iraq. The Kurdish Regional government is preparing to hold the September 25, independence referendum despite strong objection from neighboring countries and the Iraqi government, which voted Tuesday to reject Kurdistan's referendum and authorized the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to take measures against the vote. Despite the mounting pressures Kurdistan President Masoud Barzani continues to campaign and state his determination to go ahead with the vote. (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images)
The State Department made clear Friday that the United States will not recognize Iraqi Kurdistan’s referendum on independence held Monday to separate from Iraq.

Brooks: ‘Maybe Mitch McConnell’s Job Should Not be Secure’

Screenshot
On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks suggested that maybe Senate Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shouldn’t have a secure job as leader. Brooks said, “The thing I think we learned this week is that Roy Moore and Steve Bannon, what we’ll call the nationalists, they have a story to tell. They have a story about the country and why it’s going astray. They have a story about what’s wrong with Washington and the swamp and why it needs to be drained. The regular Republicans, the Mitch McConnell Republicans, have no story. And they thought they could hold off the nationalists with money, and with logistics and with party organization. And I think one of the things we’ve learned is they can’t do that, that if you want to hold off Steve Bannon, you actually have to have an argument, you have to have a story about why his kind of Republican is the wrong kind. And they don’t have that. And if they don’t have it in Alabama, they’re probably not going to have it in Tennessee, and they may not have it in Wyoming, and they may not have it in Arizona, and all the other states
