Saudi arms veto to fuel US war on Iran – fmr Pentagon official

The US Senate's failed attempt to block US President Donald Trump from selling arms to Saudi Arabia is seen as a victory for his administration as well as for US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's efforts to bolster security in the region. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof unpacks the latest on the Saudi arms vote and on an Afghan soldier who allegedly killed two US troops. Meanwhile, a woman has sued disgraced financier and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, alleging he raped her when she was 15 years old. Questions remain about what Epstein and his powerful friends did on Little Saint James, the Caribbean island he owns. We provide a peek into an upcoming exclusive report from the island, airing on Wednesday. Plus, researchers have reportedly pinpointed the exact genes that Hydras use to create stem cells for regeneration, a discovery with enormous implications for human longevity. Finally, the University of Nottingham in the UK has released a study that demonstrates a possible link between dementia and antidepressant medication.
