On the latest episode of AEI’s Banter podcast, we sit down with AEI Critical Threats guru Will Fulton to track Iran’s involvement in Syria. Will walks us through how he’s managed to asses Iranian influence using open source data. You’ll be amazed with what he’s been able to determine from judgmentally scrutinizing publically available information. He then lays out the nature of Iranian involvement – training, supplies, and intelligence. What level of influence does Iran have in Syria? Will the conflict spread out of Syria? What is the U.S. currently doing in the region? Is now the right time to buy that discount time share in Syria? All these question and more on the latest episode of Banter. Enjoy!

This week on Banter we sit down with AEI Scholar Paul Wolfowitz for an update on what’s going on in Syria. Paul has written and spoken extensively on the issue and bring a ton of knowledge and expertise to the table. We also discuss Paul’s time as ambassador to Indonesia and the importance an ambassador plays to a country that Washington tends to neglect. Finally, Andrew takes a few minutes to grumble about the politicization of polling data.
