Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Jamie Fly (Foreign Policy Initiative)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Jamie discuss the Foreign Policy Initiative’s new poll of US opinion on foreign policy. They debate whether isolationism is still an important strain in American politics. Why was the Obama administration so slow to acknowledge the Libyan consulate murders as a terrorist attack? Were the embassy demonstrations a sign of US weakness in the Middle East? Both Matt and Jamie think supporters of Bush’s “Freedom Agenda” should’ve been prepared for Morsi’s UN speech. Finally, Matt criticizes Netanyahu’s infamous bomb chart speech, while Jamie defends an aggressive stance against Iran.
