This exclusivity included documents, images, and audio and video files relating to Iran, Saudi Arabia, the insurgency in Iraq, al Qaeda’s leadership, and more. Joscelyn and Roggio joined Foreign Podicy host Cliff May for a deeper dive into the files and how they impact the future of counterterrorism policy.

Future Foreign Podicy episodes will include discussions on the rising threats from rogue states like North Korea, Iran and Russia, developing situations with the Gulf states, strategies to counter global terrorism, and regional policy debates spanning the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Europe.
