The Barber Shop blog: Mosul Dam a disaster waiting to happen

More than a year ago the terrorist group ISIS captured the city of Mosul in Iraq and, more importantly, the Mosul Dam. The dam has since been "retaken" by Iraqi forces. I'm not so sure the dam was retaken so much as given back - the terrorists not being willing to be seen as responsible for a major humanitarian crisis in case the dam collapses.
