3/13/20 Kelley Vlahos on the Release of Chelsea Manning

Scott is joined by Kelley Vlahos, executive editor at The American Conservative, to talk about the release, at long last, of Chelsea Manning, who was being held in federal jail for refusing to testify in the Julian Assange case. After a year in jail and a suicide attempt, a judge finally said that Manning’s testimony isn’t really necessary anymore and ordered her release. She will still be responsible for the hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines for her refusal to testify. Vlahos also discusses her recent articles about the U.S. military presence in Africa, which many Americans don’t even know is going on. As with many foreign policy issues, President Trump seems to have pretty good instincts on the question of American intervention in Africa, but allows himself to be bullied by the military establishment into going along with their agenda, just like every other president.
