So, Does the National Security Strategy Matter?


The War on the Rocks podcast is back with a big episode and an all-star cast. Hal Brands and Alex Bick of SAIS, Will Inboden of the Clements Center at the University of Texas, Kori Schake of the Hoover Institution, Colin Kahl of Georgetown, and Peter Feaver of Duke dish about the U..S. National Security Strategy, a report required by Congress meant to basically lay out how the president views America’s role in the world and how he plans to exercise power. And having a bipartisan group of national security leaders around the table, Ryan Evans couldn’t resist asking how they all felt the Iran deal was playing out at age two (yes, Ryan misspoke and says it’s one year old in the intro – please forgive him).
