Basri leads Iraq's elite Falcon Intelligence Cell, which was created to focus on extremist groups including Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS). The counterterrorism intelligence unit has become better known after some high-profile cases and successes in recent years.

Basri told Al-Monitor in a Baghdad interview in late February 2020 that the unit has also at times been involved in corruption cases linked to terrorism.

    WE should all unit and work together to expose off those major corruptors of the ruling parties in Baghdad and Erbil. Iraqis are sick and tired of them. We are looking forward to see proper regulations with systematic approach and implementation of procedures without any bribes or preferences to certain people or parties.

    Iraqis would like to see proper education , health, transport and housing applied within all cities of Iraq.
