My guest this week is the great Scott Horton. Scott and I discuss the War on Terror and when, if at all, American troops will finally be withdrawn from Afghanistan. Biden has already torn up the deal that Trump made with the Taliban to remove the troops by May 1, 2021. We also discuss the CIA and other nefarious groups placating the left by pretending that woke-ism and diversity are important issues to champion. At the same time, many individuals high up in government (some formerly so) are telling the country that right-wingers and libertarians are to be watched carefully as a serious threat to national security. Are we now in the CIA's scope? And speaking of the CIA, Scott gives a very good monologue on just how evil they are.
