BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: news out of Iraq , where the US has invested so much blood and treasure and still has so much at stake. After eight months of political deadlock, there appears to be a deal for a power sharing government there with Shiite, Sunnis and Kurds , and Nouri al-Maliki remaining on the job as prime minister. Our own Richard Engel told us from overseas today this is a big deal because Iraq has been inching toward a new civil war, many fear. Still, things got off to a rocky start. Only three hours into the new session of Parliament , a major political bloc got up and walked out. We'll keep our eyes on it.
BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: In Pakistan today, a massive car bomb destroyed most of a police compound in Karachi , killing at least 18, injuring over a hundred. Pakistani Taliban says it detonated the bomb.
