FPF #148 – The Myth of Iranian Influence

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

On FPF #148, I start with updates on Operation Olive Branch and Afghanistan. Turkey continues to threaten the US and allied Kurdish forces in Syria. In Afghanistan, a Taliban suicide bombing has killed over 100. I break down an interview of retired Admiral General James Stavridies by MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle. In the interview, Stavaidies presents the myth that Iran is dangerously expanding its influence in the Middle East. I explain how it was the actions of the US, Israel, and the Gulf States that is causing Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Iraq to look to Iran.
