Unauthorized Disclosure

Hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola address the madness around Syria and President Donald Trump's latest round of military strikes.

Gosztola has Khalek provide a context that is sorely missing in the U.S. press. Together they break down all the issues with jumping to the conclusions that there was incontrovertible proof that the Syrian government was behind an alleged chemical attack.

The conversation continues with talk about Arab voices shilling for more war, as well as human rights organizations that fuel the climate for military action. Gosztola talks about how Democrats were largely silent in the run-up to the strikes, as well as how Democrats failed for the past decade to assert authority over war powers—and that is part of why Trump was able to launch strikes without coming to Congress first.

Finally, Gosztola and Khalek set their sights on a few media pundits and skewer their commentary on Syria.
