Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Jason Sorens (University of BuffaloPileus)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Jason debate libertarian foreign policy. They discuss Conor Friedersdorf’s recent essay making the case against Obama, with Jason detailing the different types of foreign policy libertarianism and Rob wondering whether Friedersdorf conflated morality, legality, and constitutionality. Rob assesses the tradeoffs associated with Obama and the drone program, noting that voting inherently produces a “dirty hands” problem. Rob wonders if a libertarian foreign policy will ever catch on, then they discuss the political and economic sources of secessionist sympathies in various European countries. Rob and Jason conclude with a brief discussion of American attitudes towards Saakashvili’s Georgia.
