Bill Smullen speaks with Al-Monitor about US troop training in Iraq

Bill SmullenBill Smullen, director of the national security studies program, was quoted in the Al-Monitor article, "US elite troop training in Iraq lags after Mosul." "It needs to be a national effort," says Smullen. "There are a lot of people in civilian clothes who have ill feelings toward Iraqi military and government. It is nationwide. That’s the way they need to think of it — a national effort in all places, all ways and all times." 12/11/17
