9/13/19 Daniel Davis on Bolton’s Departure and Negotiations with the Taliban

Daniel Davis is back, this time discussing his recent USA Today op-ed on John Bolton’s ouster as President Trump’s National Security Advisor. Bolton was a fierce war hawk who pushed Trump toward war on almost every front, explains Davis, often apparently contravening Trump’s own good instincts. Davis is hopeful that Bolton’s replacement will help get negotiations in Afghanistan back on track, but fears that Trump could appoint someone who’s almost as bad.

Discussed on the show:

Daniel Davis did multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan during his time in the army. He writes a weekly column for National Interest and is the author of the reports “Dereliction of Duty II: Senior Military Leaders’ Loss of Integrity Wounds Afghan War Effort” and “Go Big or Go Deep: An Analysis of Strategy Options on Afghanistan.” Find him on Twitter @DanielLDavis1.
