On Armenian Remembrance Day, President Biden acknowledged the genocide of Armenians at the hands of Ottoman authorities beginning in 1915. Jodi, Jamil, Les, Grant and first time guest Max Hoffman, Director of National Security and International Policy at the Center for American Progress, discuss the impact of this acknowledgement on U.S.-Turkish relations and the ten year anniversary of the beginning of the conflicts in Syria and Libya. Are U.S.-Turkish relations broken beyond repair? Is Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's hold on power stable? After ten years, what is the path forward in Syria and Libya? All these questions and more answered in this week’s Fault Lines.

In this week's under the radar segment, Grant talks about the potential for a Global Minimum Tax, Les focuses on China's space program, Jodi highlights the mice swarming in Australia, Max discusses Turkey and energy politics, and Jamil honors the memory of NSI Visiting Fellow Courtney Hall.
