Episode 167: The State of State and Legacies in Denial

Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with James Jeffrey about what diplomacy can (and cannot) do, before talking with James Kirchick about former president Obama’s culpability in the deterioration of the liberal world order.

James Jeffrey is the Philip Solondz Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and he joins the program to discuss the state of the State Department and the need for better American diplomacy.

Then, James Kirchick, author of the new book The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age, speaks about the ways in which the Obama administration weakened the liberal world order, perhaps fatally.
