He’s the man behind the secretive blog and Twitter account “Mosul Eye” (@mosuleye). He’ll tell us all about his life, his family, his love of Mosul’s history, and his concerns for the future of Mosul, Iraq and the greater Middle East. Read more about the 2016-17 Mosul offensive in our special report here https://www.defenseone.com/feature/mosul-largest-battle-decade-future-of-war/ Next week we’ll be back with more on the 2017 Mosul offensive from Mike Giglio of The Atlantic. He was there for the offensive, and he’s got a book coming out on it all this autumn. And we’ll hear from former CIA man Dan Gabriel, who just produced a documentary on the Mosul offensive called simply enough: “Mosul.”
