Republicans in Congress are urging U.S. military action in Iraq to stop a Sunni-Kurdish insurgent group that has taken over territory including Mosul, the country's second largest city. Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said the U.S. should go forward with airstrikes and rally the Arab League to use special forces to "disrupt" the advance of ISIL or ISIS, as the insurgent group is called. '' Rogers said on Fox News Sunday, "It's too late to have long political reconciliation meetings."
