Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Daveed Gartenstein-Ross (Foundation for Defense of Democracies, daveedgr.com)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Daveed discuss Obama’s visit to Afghanistan. Daveed thinks the GOP makes a fair point about politicizing the Bin Laden killing. Matt and Daveed then compare how politicians use and misuse the legacies of Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush. Daveed assesses the state of Al Qaeda a year after Bin Laden’s death, and Matt takes issue with a recent column arguing that the Arab Spring has encouraged “electoral Bin Ladenism”. Finally, Matt and Daveed defend Richard Grenell, the openly gay advisor forced to resign from the Romney campaign.
