Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Daniel Larison (The American Conservative)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Daniel discuss the Snowden affair. Rob wonders whether Snowden’s activities can be separated into acceptable and unacceptable categories, while Daniel worries that it will be difficult to ever push back sufficiently against the national security state. Will Snowden spur a rollback in post-9/11 intelligence sharing? Rob asks Daniel what the Snowden affair means for great power relations. They explain why Obama isn’t making anyone happy on Syria, and question the anti-Russian obsession among the foreign policy elite. They close by discussing Rand Paul’s speech to evangelical Christians about just war.
