The Future History of Obama’s Foreign Policy
In the coming decades, will the outgoing president’s foreign policy ultimately be remembered as a success or will it be overshadowed by what some would call his inability to act? This week’s episode of The E.R. takes an in-depth look at President Barack Obama’s foreign policy strategy — where his administration has succeeded and where it has failed over the past eight years. FP’s David Rothkopf, Kori Schake, and Yochi Dreazen, as well as Derek Chollet, former U.S. assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs, discuss his forthcoming book, The Long Game: How Obama Defied Washington and Redefined America’s Role in the World.
