COI #104 – The Media Amplifies Pro-War Tropes in Attempt to Extend Afghan War

On COI #104, Kyle and Will update the progress of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. Soon after the White House announced the exit was finally underway, CNN published a scare story hyping up threats from two anonymous al-Qaeda operatives, insisting that ending the longest war in American history would invite new terrorist attacks. CNN is joined by countless other media outlets in making dire warnings about ending the war.

The Biden team has finished a policy review on North Korea, opting to strike a balance between Donald Trump’s “grand bargain” and Barack Obama’s policy of “strategic patience,” but the approach draws all the long lessons from prior administrations.

Despite Biden’s vows to end all US support for Saudi Arabia’s “offensive operations” in Yemen, recent reporting shows that American aircraft maintenance has not stopped, continuing to enable Riyadh’s lethal bombing campaign and crimes against humanity.
