Pressure is mounting for the U.S. to come up with a course of action against the uprising of ISIL in Iraq. Judy Woodruff talks to Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., who says reforms have to happen in Iraq before the U.S. decide what kind of assistance to provide. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says the U.S. should launch airstrikes and put some boots on the ground to oppose the extreme elements in Iraq.
