Mideast Splits Bedevil Obama

Wall Street Journal: "Deep gaps between U.S. and Arab views over the crisis have grown more obvious in recent days, say American and regional officials, hampering Washington's response to the onslaught by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, which this month seized control of territories straddling Iraq and Syria."

"The task gained new urgency on Sunday when ISIS swept through new Iraq towns and overran two border crossings with Jordan and Syria, blocking the Iraqi government's access to its western frontier, security officials said."

Washington Post: "Militants have now captured hundreds of miles of territory spanning Iraq's border with Syria, and fighters are within easy reach of Jordan and Saudi Arabia."
