#1. When on assignment in Iraqi Kurdistan make sure your driver is aware of the different Iranian opposition groups operating in the territory
News that US journalist Michael Totten‘s visit to meet the leadership of english-speaking, social-democratic moderates from the Iranian opposition went awry when his driver dropped him off at the wrong opposition group HQ.
Totten instead spent the afternoon in an armed camp of the military wing of the Iranian Communist Party!
