In the second of our two part series, we speak with Olivia Troye, the Director of the Republican Accountability Project, and Former White House Homeland Security, Counterterrorism & Covid Advisor to VP Mike Pence about her personal experience during and after the attacks on September 11th, 2001. As we discussed in the episode, this unique and memorable day is engrained in the minds and hearts of every American whether you were born on that day or not. Furthermore these attacks have shaped the way Americans do things from taking a flight to the amount of privacy or civil liberties they may be forfeiting in the name of national defense.
The discussion then turns to Afghanistan and the countless number of lives and money that has been expended and why it's too early to tell if this pull out will be remembered as a good decision or not by the Biden Administration. The conversation ends with some fun facts that Will and Josh learn about the character that Olivia is portrayed as in the TV show, "24"
