The Biden administration is participating in indirect talks with Iran about the JCPOA and there are conversations swirling on the Hill about revising the 2001 AUMF. Les, Jodi, Jamil and Mike discuss how to get to a better deal with Iran and whether all the talk about the AUMF is for naught. Is it possible to get a good deal with Iran? What did "maximum pressure" achieve? Is there any chance that the 2001 AUMF actually gets replaced? All these questions and more answered in this week’s Fault Lines.

In our under the radar segment, Les honors the life of Charles Hill, Grant continues to track the failed GERD talks, Jamil highlights the potential coup in Jordan, Mike discusses the corruption trial of Benjamin Netanyahu and Jodi suggests that the US should really consider boycotting the Olympics in China.
