ep44: For Us or Against Us, This is for You: Meethak alKhatib after ISIS 5 Years On In Iraq
From October 2016 to July 2017, the battle for Mosul Iraq against ISIS raged. I was there, Meethak al Khatib was there and he was one of our guides, he worked with us messy foreigners and showed us the truth in his country, the beautiful and the damned. Now he's his own journalist, making a name for himself and discovering how to navigate the pitfalls of a country still un-repaired and often forgotten by western countries. I checked in on him. He's an incredible Storyteller and the lessons are about self-reflection and internal understandings - He's translating the war for himself. Join us will you? This is the good stuff.
