This week, SUNDAY WIRE host Patrick Henningsen spoke at length with Bulgarian investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva about a brave whistleblower who helped to expose a Serbian government corruption and arms trafficking scandal, but which ended up revealing an extensive international networking of arms trafficking - with weapons procured by US Dept. of Defense and paid for by Saudi Arabia et al, before ending up in hands of ISIS in Yemen or Syria. The story has now become a national scandal. We ask: why is the US, UK, European media all silent on this story? See Dilyana's full reports at: www.armswatch.com

U.S. President Donald Trump just authorized $4.5 million in direct support to the terrorist-linked White Helmets.

21WIRE editor Patrick Henningsen talked to RT News International about how the Trump administration is now aiding in the continuation of one of the biggest international cons ever:

"Everybody who's bought into it, is married to it for life. Otherwise, the blowback would be tremendous, politically. They can't say anything bad about the White Helmets going forward."

Regarding Monday’s case hearing for #JulianAssange at Westminster Magistrates Court in London – a grave injustice is taking place.

This is an important message for supporters of the free press, free speech and the right due process. 21st century society has now reached a critical impasse. Quite clearly, governments, corporations are waging war on whistleblowers and journalists. It’s happening everywhere, and if left unchecked, it will undermine society and the last vestiges of democracy…

Patrick discusses why this issue is important right now.

21WIRE's Patrick Henningsen joins host George Galloway in-studio for Episode #17 of "The Mother of All Talkshows" – discussing the latest in U.S. politics and global affairs, including the biggest story of the last week, Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northeastern Syria.

You have to look back at previous administrations to find out where to start looking at this problem. There's an extraordinary continuity of foreign policy that goes from administration to administration. Donald Trump is threatening to upend the Syria project slightly but not completely. And if you look back at John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama – they helped to build the Free Syrian Army, to militarize them, and to send them weapons and support. Now, that job has changed. They're working for Turkey.

George and Patrick discuss and take listener calls during the first hour of the program.

After his announcement to pull US troops out of northeastern Syria, President Trump is feeling the heat from Washington’s war lobby and its MSM media arm – for supposedly “betraying our trusted US allies, the Kurds.”

Needless to say this situation is much more complex than mainline pundits are telling you. Co-hosts Patrick Henningsen and Mike Robinson breakdown some of the key aspects you’ll need in order to know what’s really happening in the Middle East, as well as MSM propaganda being circulated in order in influence Washington’s dead end foreign policy.

This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR with host Patrick Henningsen covering some of the top stories in the US, Europe and internationally. In the first hour, our Roving Correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine, will discuss the top headlines including the great British Brexit drama and other truth bombs. Later, Patrick will pipe-in to talk about the latest geopolitical farrago in Syria, as Turkey makes a play for NE Syria, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (aka The Prez) and his FSA jihadi shock troops roll into northern Syria to drive out what the western media call “The Kurds” but which are actually a US-backed confab of SDF/YPG/PKK Kurdish militants and Arab militia mercenaries. All of this coming in the wake of President Trump’s announcement to withdraw US troops which have been illegally occupying from NE Syria. At home, the #NeverTrump coalition of Democrats and Neocons are accusing Trump of betraying a US ally and letting ISIS loose again in the region. What’s true, and what’s propaganda? We hope to break down some of the essential parts of this story. Also, SUNDAY WIRE will broadcast Patrick’s recent speech in Greenwich in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and arguing for the protection of a Free Press in the west. In the second hour, we’ll be tapping into a live broadcast of MOATS (Mother of All Talk Shows) with host George Galloway speaking with Patrick Henningsen about the Middle East and which direction US policy is heading now. All this and much more. Enjoy the show…

This week, President Trump ordered U.S. forces to withdraw from northeastern Syria, opening the door for Turkey to enter that region in order to flush-out Kurdish YPG/PKK militants previously working as proxies for the Pentagon, and leaving the fight against ISIS in temporary limbo.

On Thursday, 21WIRE editor Patrick Henningsen talks to RT News International about the current situation and what needs to happen to mitigate more serious complications down the road.

21WIRE's Patrick Henningsen reporting from Beirut, Lebanon joins Fault Lines Radio hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan on Monday morning DC drive time:

A lot of Americans are marinated in a set of mainstream media ‘facts’ — that somehow the Kurds have a nation-state located in Syria.

They’re not even a majority in northeastern Syria, where the US is currently occupying alongside the so-called ‘Syrian Democratic Forces', that are basically Kurdish YPG militia who’ve been given a patch on their uniform that says ‘SDF’ and loads of weapons and money by the US.

The Kurds wouldn’t be massacred by the Syrian government. That’s just preposterous. And they wouldn’t be massacred by ISIS, if the Syrian Army was allowed in with the Russians and also the Iranian militia and Hezbollah – who would pretty much wipe them out within about a month. This would also force the Kurdish separatists, if there are any real separatists there, to negotiate with Damascus and come to some sort of arrangement. That’s the reality on the ground.

Turkey’s had a long-running plan of setting up ‘safe zones’ with the US in Syria, for refugees. It’s Turkey wanting to basically cleanse its hands of the refugee problem; when in fact, Turkey helped create the refugee problem by backing the so-called rebels in Syria since 2011. And they’re still using remnants of the Free Syrian Army as their shock troops in places like Afrin, Idlib and Jarabulus. So, Turkey is actually directly responsible for the proliferation of militants. They’ve also been implicated with letting ISIS traverse their border back and forth.

Patrick also covers briefly the current situation in the UK with Boris Johnson and Brexit, as well as the latest on 'Ukrainegate' and the real election meddling that took place in 2016.
