Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, just a day after some tough talk, has caved on his promise to disarm militant Iraqis. The news that the Iraqi government would no longer pursue “people who carry weapons” comes on the heels of an Iran-backed truce with rival Shiite leader Moqtada al-Sadr.

March Fundraising Madness Leaves Obama Smiling

Barack Obama raised more than $40 million in March to Hillary Clinton’s $20 million.
