Iraq Military Ordered to Drive Out ISIS Within a Year

Iraqi military commanders have been ordered to drive ISIS militants out of the country and into Syria within the year. A day after forces loyal to the government of Iraq scored a major victory in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit , a senior military source told NBC News that politicians were aiming to defeat the extremists over the coming months. Iraqi government forces, backed by Shiite Muslim militias and U.S.-led airstrikes, on Wednesday claimed victory over the Sunni Muslim extremists in most of Tikrit , after a month of fighting.
