The current U.S. plan for defeating the terrorist group ISIS hinges around building up the Iraqi Army's fighting capability.
But according to U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, the Iraqi Army still has a long way to go.
"The Iraqi forces just showed no will to fight. ... We can give them training, we can give them equipment, we obviously can't give them the will to fight," Carter told CNN.
