Armstrong & Getty Interview: Washington Post Beirut Bureau Chief Liz Sly

Posted: Updated:

(AM 760 KFMB) — Washington Post's Liz Sly reports from Beirut on the increasingly complicated relationships in the Middle East.  

A wider conflict has the potential to unfold in Syria as a number of different groups fight for control over the fringes of that war-torn nation. 

Syria remains an incredibly strategic location, bordering our allies Israel and Jordan. 

While the U.S. supports Kurdish forces (at odds with another U.S. ally, Turkey), who have been fighting to overthrow Syria's government, Iran and Russia continue to support the Assad administration.  

Tensions have ratcheted up within the past week, following the downing of an Israeli warplane by Syrian forces. 

Washington Post Beirut Bureau Chief Liz Sly joined Armstrong & Getty to try to explain the various interests in the region.  

Listen to the interview below.

    All 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are calling for a delay in this week's vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The Democrats have written Iowa GOP Sen. Charles Grassley, stating that the delay of Thursday's hearing would give the FBI time to investigate allegations by a woman who says a drunk Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her at a party when both were in high school in the early 1980s.
