Randa Slim, Director of Conflict Resolution at the Middle East Institute, and Sarhang Hamasaeed, Director of Middle East Programs at the US Institute of Peace, tell host Carol Castiel that Iraq continues to be a battleground where Washington and Tehran compete for influence even as Iraq grapples with the nomination of a new prime minister, plummeting oil prices, residual ISIS sleeper cells and an inadequate health infrastructure to combat the growing coronavirus.
