Your Call: Political & humanitarian crisis in Iraq
On the August 15th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of President Obama’s decision to authorize airstrikes against ISIS positions in northern Iraq. He called this a long term project. We’ll also talk about Iraq’s humanitarian and political crisis and the ouster of Prime Minster Nouri Al Maliki. We’ll be joined by the Guardian’s Martin Chulov and McClatchy’s Jonathan Landay. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
