#31: The View from Sadr Country w/ Tamer El-Ghobashy (2018/5/24)
This week Dan Ackerman (@DarnArckerman) and Peter Ronson (@Parenthestein) are joined by Tamer El-Ghobashy (@TamerELG),  the Washington Post’s Baghdad Bureau Chief.

El-Ghobashy’s reporting focuses primarily on Iraq's politics, security, and the fight against the Islamic State.

We spoke to him about the results of the recent elections in Iraq, in which a political ticket backed by the Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr won the most votes.


Read some of Tamer's reporting here:

Is it unconstitutional for Sadr to block me?:
