"Sunni Iraqi militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, on Sunday took control of the western Iraqi city of Rutba, which lies 90 miles east of the Jordan border.
Rutba became the fourth town in two days to fall into ISIS control, after Rawah, Anah and Qaim, along with two border crossings, were captured by the extremist group Sunday. The fall of Rutba, which lies on the Iraq-Jordan border, is strategic because it means the group now controls most of the country's western border, which will allow ISIS to conveniently supply arms and ammunition from Iraq to help Syrian rebels fighting Bashar Assad's administration, Associated Press, or AP, reported. Rutba's capture follows an airstrike Sunday by Iraqi government forces on the northern city of Tikrit, which killed 40 militants."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
