Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
At Jay’s prompting, Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) does a tour d’horizon: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Russia . . . Everywhere, there is danger. Everywhere, the United States has choices to make. The senator also talks about the Bergdahl swap: President Obama’s trade of five Taliban leaders for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, now charged with desertion.
Then there is the question of our defenses: Are they dangerously low, as many claim, or are they adequate to our needs? How about Edward Snowden, Russia’s American guest? Yesterday, some admirers put up a bust of him in a New York park.
Cotton also discusses the Obama presidency, the state of the GOP, and, at the end, a little basketball (for he was a hoopster, “a high-school hero and college zero,” he says). In his range, curiosity, and energy, Senator Tom Cotton is something rare on today’s scene.
