Scott Horton, The Libertarian Institute’s Managing Director, joined the Jason Stapleton Program on Novemeber 22, 2016 to discuss the US-Saudi war on Yemen.

From the Jason Stapleton Program’s show notes:

I’ve had a lot of questions about Yemen lately. It’s not in the news very often, and after you listen to this episode, you’ll know why.

Would you believe me if I told you we were fighting with and provided material support to ISIS in Yemen? I know that sounds crazy given all the patriotic talk from our wayward leaders in Washington, but it’s true. Right now the U.S. is working with the Saudi government to help the Islamic State defeat a rival faction in Yemen.

When you hear this episode, you’re going to get sick to your stomach, and it’s going to reaffirm what many of you thought about our government and our reasons for being in the middle east.
