Brian Edwards Tiekert

Brian Edwards Tiekert provided incorrect (misleading) details of the fishing zone agreed upon in the new indefinite cease fire in Gaza. The conversion of nautical miles is 1.15 miles or 1.8 kilometers. Therefore 6 nautical miles is 6.9 miles (current fishing zone) and 3 nautical miles is 3.45 miles (was the reduced zone) and not 1.8 as BET said. Otherwise the topic was very relevant and the interview interesting.

The next segment on potential new NATO bases in Europe featured a guest that was very outspoken but incompetent, with a lack of understanding of history and the realities in Central Europe. Please don't bring him again. Bring someone who is not intellectually lazy and can actually "figure out the Poles" and others in the region. None of the European countries can be given a single label because there are multiple opinions within each. In your 20min segment there is enough time to convey some if the complexities, please invest some time to do the research.
