Episode 78: ISIS’s Sex Slaves and the Iran Deal in Context

Good evening, listeners! We have an excellent show for you this week, as our host Richard Aldous invites Nina Shea to the show to discuss ISIS and sex slavery, and speaks with Paul Carrese about Obama’s Iran strategy in a historical context.

First, senior fellow and director of Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom Nina Shea comes on to the show to tell the horrifying story of ISIS’s policy of selling women and young girls into sexual slavery, especially to the young jihadis that make up the core of the caliphate.

Then, professor of Political Science at the U.S. Air Force Academy Paul Carrese joins Richard to ground the Iran deal in its appropriate historical context, arguing that President Obama more closely resembles Wilson than he does Nixon in his pursuit of the agreement. He reminds us that the views expressed are his own, and not those of any U.S. government agency.
