Amb. Ryan Crocker on the Future of Iraq Task Force Final Report

Ambassador Ryan Crocker, Chair of the Task Force on the Future of Iraq points to the conclusion of the United States’ offensive in Mosul against the Islamic State (ISIS) saying, “We’ve got to focus on the fact that the Islamic State itself is not the problem, it’s the symptom of the problem.” 
He explains, “The problem is a failure to achieve good governance in Iraq that gave them the space to move in. So unless we help the Iraqis address the governance issue, something else will emerge to take the Islamic State’s place.”
