The battle for Mosul and the future of ISIS 33 MIN, 32 SEC

A conglomerate army of some 30,000 is moving toward Mosul—the last urban stronghold of the Islamic State in Iraq. Turkish warplanes are now part of what’s called a “US led coalition,” which has captured nine villages southeast of the city. At today’s news conference, President Obama said the US has spent as much time on humanitarian planning as it has on military preparations.

The Wikileaks’ campaign to bring down Clinton 9 MIN, 30 SEC

Julian Assange of Wikileaks has been holed up in the Ecuador’s London embassy since 2012—to avoid extradition for sex-crime charges in Sweden. Wikileaks was dumping a trove of internal documents from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign until Assange’s internet access was cut off on Saturday night. It’s been restored, and the document dump continues.
