Iraq after ISIS

December 29, 2017

Episode Notes:

Doug Ollivant returns to talk with Jason about the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq. Following PM Abadi's declaration of military victory last month, the fight against the would-be caliphate is now a policing operation. With much rebuilding to be done, putting the devastation wreaked by ISIS, and the operations to defeat them, there is some possibility for a sense of national unity to prevent such a disaster from revisiting Iraq.
