The Secretary Of State was making the rounds to assure the public that the current Iraqi situation was just a setback on the road to democracy.
Asked if the Sunnis and Shi'ites were cooperating to fight U.S. forces, he replied: "There might be some tactical-level contact between the two. There's been some evidence of that. But over the last 24 hours, I have seen nothing to suggest that there is some great alliance that's forming."
I'm surprised he didn't speak about the possible cooperation between the Sunnis and Shi'ites as a positive development that demonstrated their willingness to work together for a better Iraq. He could credit the administration for bringing them together.
