In this episode, recorded on Thursday, May 10, 2018, we discuss: • Bye, bye Iran Deal: Israel carried out a series of airstrikes inside Syria just two days after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal; • U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo returned from North Korea with three released American prisoners — in just his second week on the job; • The president’s pick to lead the CIA traveled to Capitol Hill to interview for her new job; • Air Force officials spoke up about the rising number of crashes; • And seven months after it happened, we finally have a better picture of what happened in Niger back in October. • Then later, we’ll speak with two nuclear weapons experts — Melissa Hanham (33:49) and Joshua Pollack (39:00) — about the future of U.S. relations with Iran and North Korea. Today's roundtable participants include: • Kevin Baron, executive editor for Defense One; • Caroline Houck, staff correspondent; • Marcus Weisgerber, global business editor; • And Ben Watson, news editor.
