John Glaser, new Assistant Editor at, discusses Obama’s minimal drawdown of US troops in Afghanistan; how COIN doctrine is falling out of favor as its failures mount; Congress beginning to reflect public opinion on ending the wars in Afghanistan and Libya; the countercurrent in the Obama administration and major party leadership determined to carry on no matter what the people think; and a lesson Obama has learned from Libya: conduct secret wars with drone strikes so oversight, criticism and accountability can be avoided.

John Glaser is a former intern at The American Conservative magazine and CATO Institute.

One Response to “John Glaser”
