Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Tom Nichols (US Naval War College)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Tom kick give their views of Leon Panetta’s new book on the Obama administration’s decision-making. They debate whether Obama’s unenforced “red line” in Syria hurt America’s international credibility. When it comes to foreign policy, have the labels “left” and “right” lost all meaning? Returning to the question of reputation, they disagree about whether memories of the Cold War are unduly influencing policymakers’ views. Next, they consider whether political science has conquered Washington, DC. Finally, Rob and Tom offer a harsh critique of the modern political science department.
