MENA Report podcast: the latest in the coalition offensive against ISIS in Syria

Lima Charlie News MENA Report covers Middle East / North Africa developments as reported by Lima Charlie’s MENA Bureau. This week, MENA Bureau Chief John Sjoholm and LC Editor-in-Chief Anthony LoPresti discuss the ongoing coalition offensive against ISIS in Syria, the battle for Tabqa Dam, Tabqa Airbase and the assault on the Islamic Caliphate’s self-proclaimed capital, al Raqqa. The big question then discussed is, what will happen when ISIS in al Raqqa and Syria is defeated? Along the way, John discusses his recent article, “VICTORY – Mission Tabqa Dam Complete, joint US SpecOps retake vital dam from ISIS,” and his OpEd, “Secretary of Defense James Mattis: Moderate? Liberal? American.”
