Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Rob explore the foreign policy aspects of the election. They begin with what Paul Ryan means for foreign policy in the campaign, and for the battle between neocons and realists within the GOP. They next discuss what Israeli threats to attack Iran are intended to do, and how such threats might affect the course of the election. Rob and Matt then talk about Syria, including the effect of unrest on Iran-Israel relations and on US Presidential rhetoric. How have neoconservatives dealt with the Arab Spring? Finally, they delve into a new right-wing effort to undercut the Obama administration on killing Osama bin Laden.
