In the not-too-distant past, before the 2016 election, before the annexation of Crimea, the word most closely associated with U.S. – Russia relations was “reset.” In the early years of the Obama presidency, leaders of the two countries were meeting, signing treaties, siding together on U.N resolutions.

Then, last weekend’s elections in Iraq produced surprising results. The coalition of leader Muqtada al-Sadr, a cleric who has been highly critical of the U.S., came out on top. Diane sits down with Iraq’s ambassador to the U.S. to talk about Sadr’s victory, and the role he sees his country playing in the region.
