Pushing Back ISIS

Anti-ISIS forces have scored a string of victories recently, and lots of people haven't heard about them. Why do we hear about the defeats, but not the victories? How can we get the full picture?

In this episode Xander and Erik discuss what's going on in Fallujah, Mosul, and northwestern Syria, and what the strategic implications are. Spoiler alert: anti-ISIS forces are making grinding, but steady progress. It's exciting... but why don't you hear about the good news? Why do you get so much exposure to setbacks, and almost none to progress?
