Look who got rich off of arming the Taliban (Full show)

Washington cannot say whether or not it has a plan to keep US weapons out of the hands of the Taliban. The Taliban, triumphant and firmly in control of Afghanistan and against whom the US waged two decades of bloody and expensive warfare, is now in possession of US tanks, guns and other military equipment. Raytheon, Boeing, Northrop-Grumman and Lockheed-Martin quietly raked in billions of dollars from the slow-motion fiasco while the US taxpayers footed the bill. RT America’s Faran Fronczak joins Scottie Nell Hughes to share the infuriating details.

Then US Army veteran and conservative commentator Cory Mills joins to discuss the enrichment of defense contractors even as US veterans are routinely and repeatedly betrayed. A new blood test can tell you whether you suffer from “long COVID.” RT America’s Sayeh Tavangar reports.

Meanwhile, nationwide shortages of hospital staff have changed the way healthcare is provided to patients. Dr. John Dombrowski of the Washington Pain Center explains how hospitals are coping with the dearth of nurses in the midst of the pandemic.

Plus, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio thinks we can pay criminals to renounce crime. Will the plan work? Retired Chief Deputy US Marshal Matthew Fogg joins News.Views.Hughes to weigh in.
