Pushback with Aaron Maté
In a new article for Foreign Affairs, scholar Joshua Landis and former Obama administration official Steve Simon write that US sanctions on Syria “further immiserates the Syrian people, blocks reconstruction efforts, and strangles the economy that sustains a desperate population during Syria’s growing humanitarian and public health crises.” Landis, a leading expert on Syria, joins Pushback.
Guest: Joshua Landis, Sandra Mackey Professor of Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma.
