On Conflicts of Interest #22, Kyle and Will update the situation between the US and Iran after a 13-year UN arms embargo expired over the weekend, as was set out in the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. Despite throwing a fit, Washington did not get its way on the weapons blockade. Don’t expect to hear about it during the next presidential debate, however, as the second and final event will not feature a foreign policy segment.

The top 50 think tanks in the US are heavily bankrolled by the military industrial complex and the government itself, a new report shows, perhaps explaining why organizations across the Beltway so reliably parrot the same hawkish talking points.

Bolivia’s presidential election concluded on Sunday, with exit polls showing a blowout victory for socialist challenger Luis Arce, a hand-picked successor to ousted President Evo Morales, who was forced out of power last year in a US-backed coup.
