Soldierly death & congressional ignorance

Soldierly death & congressional ignorance

Major senators have said they were unaware that the US even had troops in Niger and what their mission is. Decorated combat veteran and US Congressman Steve Russell (R-Oklahoma) joins Larry to offer his insight and why it’s “baffling” that any lawmaker would be unaware, since they must have had access to such knowledge. Unfortunately, he says, too many legislators “aren’t engaged with that part of the world.” Then analyst and strategist Jennilee Brown and former army ranger and Obama campaign official, Robin Biro, join the discussion.
