Elijah Magnier returns to the show to discuss the results of the recent Iraqi parliamentary election and the possible coalitions that could form in order to determine who will be the next Iraqi prime minister. Magnier discusses how the Iraqi civil war has affected voting turnout, who really holds the key to power, and why sectarianism in Iraq is receding into the background.

Elijah Magnier is the chief international correspondent at Al Rai and a political and terrorism/counterterrorism analyst. Find all his work at elijahjm.wordpress.com and follow him on Twitter @ejmalrai.
