Ep 9.0 – Interview with Iona Craig at the Intercept – Part 2

Here’s Part 2 of our in-depth interview with Iona Craig of The Intercept on all things Yemen.  Thanks to Iona for taking so much time to talk with us and sitting in on some of our headlines.

We also dig into the recent news involving denied claims for veterans and family members who were poisoned by drinking contaminated water at Camp Lejuene.  This is a far reaching issue, as anyone who lived or worked on or near Camp Lejuene could possibly get diseases, including a variety of cancers.  If you happen to have served or lived in that area, please click the link below for the VA’s website dedicated to this issue.  There’s also the matter of current servicemembers being forced to use and drink contaminated water (looking at you, Quantico!!)
