Unauthorized Disclosure

Arab American professor and activist Rania Masri joined the show from Lebanon to talk about Saudi Arabia and how they are holding Saad Hariri, the Lebanese Prime Minister, captive.

In the interview, Masri, a guest for the full episode, breaks down what has unfolded, briefly outlines political responses in Lebanon, what King Mohammed bin Salman may be seeking to accomplish, and how media is whitewashing the regime by treating Salman as a "reform king." She also addresses the blaming of Iran by the Saudis, Israel, or the United States to justify the escalation of tensions among countries.

Later in the show, she recaps the first year of Donald Trump's presidency and how the administration has reinforced the agenda of the Saudi regime.
