Secretary of State John Kerry shakes hands with Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al Jaafari during their meeting at the State Department on Thursday, July 21, 2016. Jaafari is a Shiite Muslim in a country where the Sunni Muslim minority has felt marginalized since the U.S.-led invasion toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003. That sense of alienation helped feed the rise of the Islamic State, experts say, and is likely to undercut pacification efforts if and when the Islamic State is defeated.
