I am a former leader of a Human Terrain Team in Iraq. My intent with this blog was to identify relevant, open-source materials on Iraqi culture, society, politics, religion and economics - just about anything on or about the Iraqi population in general.
I am continuing the blog now only sporadically, as a means of information distribution in support of efforts to improve a vital program hamstrung by failures in execution.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Michael Bhatia, as well as to the members of the HTS community with whom he worked. Michael was an HTS social scientist on the Afghan 1 team, killed last week in Afghanistan.
