Willing to Turn His Back on NATO, Trump Fulfills Putin’s Dearest Wish

July 21, 2016 The Republican nominee for president, Donald J. Trump, has chosen this week to unmask himself as a de facto agent of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a KGB-trained dictator who seeks to rebuild the Soviet empire by undermining the free nations of Europe, marginalizing NATO, and ending America’s reign as the...

Is There a Hillary Doctrine?

May 15, 2016 It has seemed to me, for as long as I’ve been watching Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama make foreign and national-security policy, that the differences in outlook and approach between the two of them are fundamental and dramatic. I would call these differences profound, but I don’t want to be...

There Are No Good Alternatives to the US-Saudi Relationship

April 21, 2016 A couple of weeks ago, I was talking with Philip Gordon, who held the Middle East portfolio at the National Security Council from 2013 to 2015 (and before that, served as assistant secretary of state for European affairs) about my Atlantic article, “The Obama Doctrine.” The piece tried to explain...

The Obama Doctrine

March 13, 2016 Friday, August 30, 2013, the day the feckless Barack Obama brought to a premature end America’s reign as the world’s sole indispensable superpower—or, alternatively, the day the sagacious Barack Obama peered into the Middle Eastern abyss and stepped back from the consuming void—began with a thundering speech given on Obama’s...

Obama's 'Red Line' That Wasn't

March 13, 2016 In August of 2012, Barack Obama made a statement that Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons would constitute a “red line.” When Assad’s army killed more than 1,400 people with sarin gas one year later, the president initially believed that he would carry out a strike. Atlanticnational correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg...

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter: Gulf Arabs Need to Get in the Fight

November 6, 2015 U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter had reassuring words for Israel when I interviewed him last week in his office at the Pentagon, but he also had blunt criticism of other American allies in the Middle East: the Arab Gulf states, who, he argued, sometimes appear unwilling to effectively engage...

Carter: Gulf Allies Need Better Special Operators, Ground Forces More Than 'Fancy' Jets

November 6, 2015 U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter had reassuring words for Israel when I interviewed him last week in his office at the Pentagon, but he also had blunt criticism of other American allies in the Middle East: the Arab Gulf states, who, he argued, sometimes appear unwilling to effectively engage...

Can the US Military Help the White House and Israel Move Beyond Iran?

November 3, 2015 Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dispatched his defense chief, Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon, to Washington, to help smooth the way for his own visit next week, which will be his first since President Barack Obama defeated his counterproductive campaign to sink the Iran nuclear agreement. Those who follow Israeli...

10 Responses to Iran-Deal Skeptics

September 1, 2015 Last week, I posted a series of sharp, critical questions addressed to President Obama from Robert Satloff, the executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, about the Iran nuclear deal. A number of administration surrogates have subsequently offered me their own answers to Satloff’s questions. (I’ve asked...

10 Questions for President Obama About the Iran Deal

August 27, 2015 It appears likely, as of this writing, that Barack Obama will be victorious in his fight to implement the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by his secretary of state, John Kerry. Republicans in Congress don’t appear to have the votes necessary to void the agreement, and Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign to subvert...
