Episode 80: Violence in Israel and Corruption in the Northern Triangle
The violence in Israel continues unabated. Fault Lines welcomes Simone Ledeen, NSI Visiting Fellow and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, and Brian Katulis, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, to discuss the causes of this latest flare up, how other actors in the region are responding, and what role of the United States should play with Fault Lines Host Les Munson.
Following those interviews, Grant moderates a conversation with Simone, Les, and returning guest Rob Walker about the Northern Triangle, corruption, and foreign aid. Should aid be tied to good governance? How can policymakers work towards long-term goals in the region? What role should limiting the drug trade play in the discussion? All these questions and more answered on this week’s Fault Lines.
