President Obama & Foreign Policy


The battle against ISIS, the recent Israel election, nuclear talks with Iran and the U.S. military exit in Afghanistan -- President Obama has his hands full of high-stakes foreign policy issues as well as efforts by Congressional Republicans to publicly challenge some of his initiatives. A look at the struggle between Congress and the White House over foreign matters, the U.S. strategy on ISIS and the future of Israel-Palestine peace efforts. Our guests: Max Hilaire, professor and chair of the Morgan State University political science department, and presidential historian Richard Striner of Washington College.
