Informative, Insightful, and Entertaining

The first episode of this new podcast series does a great job outlining the national security threats facing our country today, in a way that everyone can understand. The topics are relevant and complicated, but the experts explain these concepts in effective ways. Very bipartisan approach to national security/foriegn affairs and I am excited to see future episodes!

Islamic State

The interview with Seth Jones was highly biased. Yes, Trump speaks in hyperbole, so it’s entirely possible Baghdadi’s whimpering was exaggerated. It’s beside the point. I’m also intrigued by so many experts worried about abandoning the Kurds. How about the untenable position they put us in? What exactly are the experts suggesting as a long term solution? Lots of complaining about no strategy, then not offering strategies. We should absolutely be true to allies and partners, but they owe us the same.
