Description

A New York Times investigation has revealed evidence of a secret Russian operation to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan — and of the failure of the Trump administration to act on that intelligence.

Guest: Eric Schmitt, who covers terrorism and national security for The New York Times.
