On Conflicts of Interest #8, Will and Kyle discuss CENTCOM commander Frank McKenzie’s recent statement on the New York Times’s “Russian bounties” story, saying he’d seen no evidence to support the assertion. 

Negotiating teams from the Afghan government and the Taliban have met in Qatar for long-awaited peace talks, just as President Donald Trump nominated William Ruger, an Afghan war skeptic, for the ambassador position.

The Venezuelan government has charged an American citizen for terrorism and arms trafficking, accusing him of plotting sabotage on energy facilities, but citing little evidence.

US officials are increasingly concerned that they could face war crimes charges linked to US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, who has used American weapons to commit atrocities in Yemen for more than five years.

US officials and military concerned that they will be charged with war crimes!
