The U.S. military has released Shiite militant Laith al-khazali, suspected of killing five American soldiers in 2007.
Along with his brother, al-khazali was accused of staging a raid on government headquarters in Karbala. Both are also members of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, a group which is thought to be Iranian-backed.
Ghassan Shabaneh, assistant professor of international studies at Marymount Manhattan College, discusses the implications of al-khazali’s release.
