This is an incredibly thought-provoking and stimulating conversation that I highly recommend everyone watch. Andrew Bacevich doesn’t pull any punches as he describes the utter and total failure of Bush Administration policies and the disaster caused by his taking us to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Furthermore, he isn’t wearing any rose-colored glasses when he talks about the future of America in the global arena. This conversation isn’t for the weak of heart.
Andrew Bacevich is a professor of history and international relations at Boston University. A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, he received his Ph.D. in American Diplomatic History from Princeton University. Before joining the faculty of Boston University, he taught at West Point and Johns Hopkins University.
