Iraq’s New Government

May 8, 2020

Episode Notes:

After five months, Iraq finally has a new government. Parliament selected Mustafa al-Kadhimi, a former intelligence chief, as prime minister. The previous government resigned in November in the face of mounting public protests over corruption and unemployment.

Douglas A. Ollivant — a former director for Iraq at the National Security Council, ASU Future of War senior fellow at New America, and the managing partner at Mantid International — joins the Warcast to explain developments in Iraq.
