Angry panel skewers 'clownish' US foreign policy & media lies (Full show)

Is all that has happened as the US ends its efforts in Afghanistan really as catastrophic as US media is currently reporting, or are US journalists overplaying a war they have all but ignored for more than a decade? Rick Sanchez argues that the outcome of the US invasion and ill-considered withdrawal was only unexpected to those not paying attention. Meanwhile, China and Russia have vowed to work with the Taliban to stabilize the country it again controls. Then “Boom Bust” host Ben Swann reports on joint military exercises between Tajikistan and China near the Afghan border and what it says about the future of the region. Then Peter Kuznick of American University and Sourabh Gupta of the Institute of China-America studies share their insights on the US coverage of the withdrawal.

The billionaire space race between Blue Origin and SpaceX has seen a new twist. Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos is suing NASA over a coveted contract it awarded to SpaceX for lunar landing equipment. RT America's Trinity Chavez reports before Brent Jabbour of "Boom Bust" shares his expertise.

Plus, intense droughts in the American Southwest have led to water shortages now officially classed as an emergency. The Colorado River Basin is disappearing, with looming repercussions for wildlife, agriculture and beyond. RT America's Faran Fronczak reports the disturbing details of this vivid example of climate change.
