White House leaks; update on Yemen

Listen 00:49:50

Guests: Dana Milbank and Barbara Bodine

There have been a number of leaks coming out of the White House since the Trump administration took office. Most recently, the allegedly combative telephone conversation the President had with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. We’ll talk with Washington Post’s political columnist DANA MILBANK about the leaks and what they tell us about the new administration.  Finally, the counterterrorism raid on an al-Qaeda stronghold in Yemen led to the deaths of a number of civilians and Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens. We’ll talk about the civil war and al-Qaeda in Yemen with former Ambassador to Yemen, BARBARA BODINE who is now Director of the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University.
