Iraq after Soleimani

  • January 10, 2020

After tensions with Iran escalated, American military operations in Iraq have been curtailed over concerns about possible attacks on U.S. soldiers. To discuss the threat to the U.S. military, Aaron spoke with Ian Rice, a retired US Army Colonel with experience in Iraq about the role of Shia militias in the fight against Islamic State — and the threat they may now pose for U.S. interest. In a second interview, Aaron also spoke FPRI’s Dr. Mike Noonan to drill down into the legal authorities for the targeted killing and the authorities governing American military force in the country.
