Robert Kagan, Senior Fellow, Brookings; Author, “The World America Made”

As President Obama’s second term begins, he — and we — find ourselves yet again at foreign affairs crossroads. A possible nuclear rise in Iran. A so-called Arab Spring that has morphed into crises from Syria to Egypt, Mali, Libya, Algeria and beyond. In Asia, continuing questions about what role China will play regionally — and globally. And now, a change at the top of the US State Department comes while many Americans are turning ever-more inward. How to navigate these challenges, where the stakes cannot be overstated? Dr. Robert Kagan is a senior fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe in Foreign Policy at Brookings. He serves as a member of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Affairs Policy Board, and his most recent book is “The World America Made.” (Originally broadcast 1-27-13 on The John Batchelor Show)
