Quentin Somerville, BBC News, and his colleagues have a photo-essay 'The Secret Lives of IS Fighters', sub-titled: 'Three young IS militants lie dead on the banks of the River Tigris. They left behind personal photos and documents which reveal the extraordinary story of their private lives.'

Some points to note, including an Iraqi infiltrator in IS.

Almost forgot I also just did an interview with RAND's James Dobbins about whether the Pentagon adequately prepared for postwar Iraq. Dobbins was part of a group that got briefed on the Defense Department's plans in Jan 03. Here's a link.

Just finished security wrap up for June 2017 in Iraq. Violence is at lowest level seen in years across the country except for Ninewa due to Mosul battle. Here's a link.
