Julia Pitner, Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, participated in a radio talk show discussion about the Islamic State and Syria on KHSU's Thursday Night Talk program. The program also included two professors from Humboldt State University - Dr. William Herbrechtsmeier from the Religious Studies department and Leena Dallasheh, History and Middle East studies.
Pitner talked about the difficulty of reporting from the region:
“A lot of those territories where it’s possible around the edges, there are citizens who are reporting and the difficulty is verifying that information…International media is not allowed, the regional media is also not allowed, and a lot of reporters have been lost, have been killed in the war that’s going on there or by Daesh or by the other Islamic groups that are operating in Northern Syria.”
