In the first hour, Mark Sleboda joined the show to talk about the situation in Afghanistan after the hurried US exit left the economy in shambles and starvation running rampant. We also discussed escalating tensions in Libya as armed groups mobilize ahead of elections being held.
In the second hour, Fault Lines was joined by Jim Kavanagh for a discussion on Joe Manchin admitting the ‘real’ reason he’s rejecting Biden’s trademark social spending bill, and how Biden should have negotiated differently.
In the third hour, Peter Coffin joined the conversation to talk about President Biden losing power as BBB gets buried, a year-in-review of his agenda, and what things could have looked like.
