CNN’s Wolf Blitzer described to viewers the grim reality Iraqis face. Speaking on television Thursday afternoon, Wolf said, "The whole country of Iraq is seemingly falling apart right now. This was not the way it was supposed to be after President Obama announced that all U.S. forces would be leaving. He was hoping obviously, that there would be some peaceful transition there."
He continued, "Iraq right now falling apart and tens of thousands of minorities- Christians and Yazidis and others, Iraqi Shiites, are being endangered as we speak right now."
