Ansar al-Sharia in Tunisia

Daveed Gartenstein-Ross joins me to discuss Ansar al-Sharia in Tunisia (AST). We talk about AST’s background, operations, and the recent events surrounding the government crackdown on their Kairouan Conference. Daveed is a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and has recently finished a research fellowship at the International Center for Counter-Terorism at The Hague where he focused on AST.
