On January 20, Christopher Preble and his co-hosts of the Net Assessment podcast assessed President Biden’s foreign policy in his administration’s first year.
“There appear to have been more failures than successes to the group but, as Frank Gavin explains in the lead essay at the Texas National Security Review, a bit of perspective is in order. Crafting and executing foreign policy is difficult, even for a seasoned hand like Biden. To the extent that the promise of his approach to the world hasn’t lived up to reality, the three debated how much can be tied to his vision (is there one?), how much to poor execution, and how much to other factors over which the president has no control.”
