Facing The Islamic State Threat

At a checkpoint outside the northern Iraqi town of Makhmur, I saw something I'd never seen before in Iraq.Two men were checking cars. One was young and wearing a sand-colored uniform of the official Iraqi Kurdish forces, called the Peshmerga. The other was older, grizzled and dressed in an olive-green, traditional Kurdish overall, and he's with Turkey's Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). #FullNewsAudioAvailable #NPR
