Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday the United States would give "a very thorough vetting of every option that is available," to quell a worsening conflict in Iraq, including drone strikes and cooperating with Iran. Kerry told Katie Couric in a Yahoo! News interview that he doesn't think the Sunni insurgents creating havoc in Iraq will take Baghdad in "the near term," but "when you have people murdering, assassinating in these mass massacres, you have to stop that — from the air or otherwise."
