Chris Hayes Podcast with Sarah Chayes | Why Is This Happening? – Ep 175 | MSNBC


Note: This conversation was recorded on July 27th, 2021, before the latest news in Kabul.
Recognized around the globe for her research on corruption, Sarah Chayes has seen her fair share of corruption at play. She also had frontline experience in Afghanistan during the events leading up to the country’s collapse. The anti-corruption activist witnessed incidents that ultimately contributed to the United States’ recent withdrawal. Chayes’ career has led her from reporting in Paris for NPR and covering the fall of the Taliban in 2001, to examining developing countries that are considered corrupt during a stint at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The prolific author has said that kleptocratic actions are an “existential threat facing our generation” and her book “On Corruption In America – And What Is At Stake” examines the myriad reasons why unscrupulous practices are prevalent across global networks, and why crisis results.

Chris Hayes Podcast with Sarah Chayes | Why Is This Happening? – Ep 175 | MSNBC


  1. *Joe Biden is a Foreign Policy Expert with 50 years Experience, and Trump? he was supposed to be the Neophyte.*

    *So why would Jihadi Joe do anything that Trump wanted to do?*

    1. Well Keith, it happens every now and then that coming from a totally different angle, the decision lines converge
      Bonespurs desperately wanted to make a name for Himself and Smoking Joe wanted to do the right thing
      Ten years overdue, never the right time, cut your losses, save the lives of American military personnel
      Yes, stop chasing ones tail

  2. I hope MSNBC YouTube doesn’t shut down the internet from the insane amount of traffic they’ve been getting as of late

  3. Listening and hearing more and more about Afghanis, pulling out of Afghanistan was overdue
    Brave decision from a brave president

  4. John 8:44
    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

  5. Sarah and Chris are such marvelous, smart and principled people. I LOVED this episode. It’s such a stirring reality that corruption seems inherent in our species, but it’s a matter of DEGREES, not types, and therefore we can’t afford to keep “otherizing” (my word) other more problematic countries. FANTASTIC !
