(Before It's News)

Last night on The Fifth Column, the weekly podcast triumvirate of Kmele Foster, Michael C. Moynihan, and myself, we were busy talking to the newsmaking national security reporter Eli Lake, he of the Susan Rice unmasking scoop, when word came in that Donald Trump’s first cruise missiles were landing on Syria. Lake, who wrote a seminal piece for Reason in 2010 about how the Sept. 14, 2001 authorization for the use of military force has been extended and bent to justify an unending stream of interventions, reacted in real time (while receiving healthy pushback) to the legality, propriety, and political reality of Trump’s new war. Take a listen:

Nick Gillespie also interviewed Lake for a Reason Podcast in February.
