Foreign Entanglements RSSpodcastemail

Matthew Duss (Center for American Progress, ThinkProgress) and James Joyner (Outside the Beltway, The Atlantic Council)

On Foreign Entanglements, James explains the Atlantic Council’s shadowy supporters, which may or may not include “friends of Hamas.” Matt wonders whether Hagel’s critics really are this stupid, or just think their audience is. James describes the DC think tank landscape. Did Rand Paul’s foreign policy speech mark a return of GOP realism? Matt argues that, by now, we know who John McCain really is. James sees parallels between Obama’s foreign policy and Reagan’s. Plus: Is Sen. Ted Cruz just a jerk?
