Obama Administration Foreign Policy Agenda
Nancy Calo read news headlines from C-SPAN Radio at the end of the program.
Max Boot talked about President Obama’s second term foreign policy agenda and challenges. Topics included threats arising from Middle East regional instability as a result of the “Arab Spring” popular revolutions that began in 2011, and his book, Invisible Army, a history of guerilla warfare. He also reacted to stories in the news that day, such as the Defense Department’s announcement that it would lift the ban on women serving in combat and Secretary of State Clinton’s testimony before two congressional committees on the U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi.
