Ted Rall - Political cartoonist and syndicated columnist | Kamala Ignores the Border… Again
Manila Chan - Veteran news anchor and host of RT America’s daily news program In Question | Govt Shutdown Looming & Joe Biden UN General Assembly Speech
Scott Ritter - Former UN weapons inspector and a Weapons of Mass Destruction Whistleblower | Taliban Wants To Address General Assembly & Divisions in the Taliban
In the first hour Ted Rall joined the show to talk about the plight of politicians to become celebrities in order to be elected, and some celebrities to become politicians. Ted also talked about the new governing in Afghanistan and if the Taliban is willing to fully eradicate oppositions in their country.
In the second hour Fault Lines was joined by Manila Chan for a discussion on the remarks made by President Joe Biden at the United Nations General Assembly. Biden assures America and the world that the US will not enter into a new Cold War. How far are the Republicans willing to push legislation around the debt ceiling?
In the third hour Scott Ritter joined the conversation to talk about the request of the Taliban to speak at the United Nations General Assembly. It is clear they would like to be treated like a legitimate governing power on the world stage. How will the Taliban deal with the infighting within their groups? Are they capable of forming a true government, or are they stuck in the ways of foot-soldiers?
