A New York Times Profile Stirs Up The Foreign Policy Establishment

A profile of Ben Rhodes in this week’s New York Times Magazine has ignited the foreign policy “establishment.” 

Rhodes is President Obama’s deputy national security adviser and he’s been in the White House since Obama’s first day in office. In the article, Rhodes criticizes the press and what he calls the foreign policy establishment “Blob.”

Drezner joins us to share his take on the Rhodes kerfuffle.
