FILE - In this Monday, Sept. 8, 2014 file photo, Iraqi lawmakers attend a session to approve the new government in Baghdad, Iraq. Iraq's parliament rejected defense and interior nominees on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014, leaving the crucial ministerial posts unfilled as a U.S.-led coalition intensifies its air campaign against Islamic extremists who have seized a third of the country. The two powerful security portfolios have long been a source of tension among Iraq's feuding political factions, and the failure to agree on the nominees marked the latest in a series of delays in forming a unified government that can confront the Islamic State extremist group.
