12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
As the current administration nears its end, many critics dismiss George W. Bush as a failure, and few defenders of the Bush Doctrine remain, with Democrats and Republicans opportunistically censuring the president and calling for an overhaul of U.S foreign policy.
In their compelling new book, After Bush: The Case for Continuity in Foreign Policy, Timothy Lynch and Robert Singh make the argument that, rather than repudiate the actions of the past eight years, the next president should continue current foreign policies. Lynch and Singh also offer a positive audit of the war on terror, contending that it is properly understood as a second Cold War and that its central tenets are consistent with policies shaped by former administrations, both Republican and Democratic. Perhaps most controversial, the authors predict that, despite current attitudes, Bush's successors will take on the war against radical Islamist terror with similar moxie.
Hudson Institute was pleased to host a lunch discussion with Lynch and Singh. Hudson CEO Kenneth Weinstein moderated. Lawrence Kaplan, editor of World Affairs, provided commentary.
