President Obama sat down with Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic for a series of interviews. Those interviews concerned foreign policy and America’s place in the world. Goldberg wrote them up, here. And Jay wrote a couple of columns, critiquing Obama (here and here).

elliott-abrams1Wanting reinforcement, he has called on Elliott Abrams, the conservative foreign-policy guru, and veteran of the Reagan and Bush 43 administrations. The two men talk about Reagan-era events and people – Grenada, the Contras, Gorbachev – and more recent events and people: the Iraq War, the Syrian Civil War, Putin . . . Mainly, they talk about our current president, Obama.

Jay said he felt better after listening to Elliott – certainly reinforced – and maybe you will too.
