10:14 am
but ultimately, that's not something we can have control over for decades, the u. s. government has armed non state groups in iraq, afghanistan, libya, syria, and elsewhere. often with unintended consequences. most recently enough, ghana, stan weapons supplied by the united states to fight the taliban, are now being used by some malicious against civilians to commit human rights violations. the defense department is calculating just how much money the white house will need from congress for weapons for ukraine, whatever the amount president biden says, the goal is to keep the weapons flowing without interruption. kimberly, how can al jazeera the white house still ahead on al jazeera? i'm rob rentals in cleveland, ohio, with a report on the problem of abandoned boil and gas wells and how one organization is
