On Drezburt, Heather and Dan discuss Obama’s big foreign policy speech at West Point. Has the administration failed to prioritize international trade agreements? Who was the speech’s intended audience? Can Congress be persuaded to lift sanctions on Iran? Why is John Kerry telling Edward Snowden to “man up”? Dan argues that Obama is just going through the motions on foreign policy, and wonders if the administration is catering to public indifference to global affairs. Plus: Heather asks Dan about his new book on the financial crisis.
