Dexter Filkins to Discuss Iraq on NPR’s Fresh Air:If you are in the US, check your local NPR station for when it broadcasts Fresh Air with Terry Gross. The April 29th edition will feature an interview with journalist Dexter Filkins, who recently spent four weeks in Iraq, in the run-up to its national elections.

His article is set to appear in The New Yorker, but you can listen to Filkins discuss it today. Given the depth of reporting, the relationship between Maliki and Tehran is sure to come up.
