Moulton to Propose Four Key Areas Obama Administration and Future Administrations Must Focus on for Success in Iraq

September 13th, 2016

Today at the United States Institute of Peace, Moulton will outline his strategy

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA), who has been critical of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, will outline four specific areas that he hopes to see this and future Administrations take to strengthen peace and stability in Iraq. Over the past year, Moulton has conducted an extensive review of U.S. policies in Iraq, including three oversight visits to Iraq as a member of the House Armed Services Committee to meet with military generals, top foreign policy leaders, and our troops on the ground. In his recent Op-Ed in The Washington Post, Moulton argued that U.S. policies “have yet to articulate a political plan to ensure Iraq’s long-term stability.”

At 3PM today, Moulton will announce his proposed strategy and make recommendations for U.S.-Iraq policy that he says are critical to defeating ISIS and helping stabilize the Middle East. Following his speech at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), Moulton will take part in a Q&A session moderated by USIP President, Nancy Lindborg.
