This week on Banter, Michael Rubin joined the show to discuss the recent Kurdish referendum on independence from Iraq, the Kirkuk crisis, and the implications of an independent Kurdistan for the Middle East as well as the US. Rubin is an AEI Resident Scholar and former Pentagon official whose research focuses on the Middle East, Turkey, Iran, and diplomacy. He has written extensively on the Kurds, including the recently published monograph, Kurdistan Rising.
