Late last week, news reports emerged that the US State Department had stopped sending funding to the group in Syria known as the 'White Helmets.' The controversial organization has come under scrutiny for their actions, and journalist Vanessa Beeley joins Garland and Lee to give her thoughts on this development.
The NRA held their annual conference over the weekend in Dallas, Texas. With the 2nd Amendment and gun rights set to be a major issue in the midterm elections, campus carry activist Antonia Okafor returns to Fault Lines to discuss the event and the major concerns expressed by grassroots activists.
For the final segment of the show, Garland and Lee talk with Pearson Sharp, a foreign correspondent for One America News, about his recent trip to Syria. Pearson spoke with local residents in Douma about the alleged chemical attack and shares what he learned while reporting on-the-ground in Syria.
