In the spring of 2013, Derek Monroe, Illinois-based independent writer and journalist with the international media, visited Northern Iraq's Kurdistan region. Despite both Bush and Obama administrations hailing the region as a US "success" story, Monroe found the reality on the ground different from advertised.  Monroe has covered eastern.Europe, Latin America and the US for Seoul, Korea-based Ohmynews. He is also a contributor to Foreign Policy in Focus, a Washington DC publication.
