Hosted by

With the votes still coming in, we’ll look ahead at one of the major challenges facing the next President of the United States: the fight against ISIS. It’s a legacy of George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq, one that Barack Obama has struggled unsuccessfully to leave behind. The battle to liberate Mosul from the Islamic State has been raging for the past month. The US is backing an unlikely coalition of forces who’ve come together despite ancient grievances between one another.
