America’s pro-war press is losing its collective mind over Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal

This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show arguing that political reporters' desperate desire to prove to their critics on the right that they weren't biased against Donald Trump is leading many of them to create a narrative of crisis around the Biden administration. Working the refs is as effective as ever.
 
Then we decided to go outside the box and welcome a guest to discuss Afghanistan who doesn't have undisclosed ties to the defense industry and isn't an advocate for permanent war. Stephen Miles,. executive director of Win Without War, joins us to have a very different conversation than they're having over on the cable news networks.
