"Unauthorized Disclosure" is back for another season in 2024!

We kick the year off with a show regular, Matthew Hoh, who is a former Marine, former State Department official, and the associate director for the Eisenhower Media Network. You can find his writing on war and foreign policy at MatthewHoh.Substack.com.

Matthew discusses the US government's attacks on Yemenis and how the Israeli government's war on Gaza is expanding to a wider regional conflict. He addresses the denial and detachment from reality exhibited by officials in President Joe Biden's administration. And he also shares his biggest fear about what is unfolding in the Middle East.

Later in the episode, Matthew calls attention to the threat of nuclear weapons and comments on the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists maintaining the Doomsday Clock at 90 seconds to midnight.
