Counterbalance Ep. 11: Biden's Realignment in the Middle East

Michael Doran & Marshall Kosloff

This week Marshall interviewed Mike and his co-author Tony Badran about their new article in Tablet, titled The Realignment, which argues that Biden is following in Obama’s footsteps in the Middle East by seeking a broad strategic accommodation with Iran, one that goes way beyond the nuclear deal and has sinister implications for the United States.

About Counterbalance:

Counterbalance is a foreign policy podcast that embodies Hudson’s tradition of challenging conventional wisdom. The Trump era attacked the elite consensus regarding several key issues, including the rise of China, American policy toward the Middle East, and the compartmentalization of domestic and foreign policy. Many observers in the media and in establishment foreign policy circles are presenting the advent of a Biden presidency as a total repudiation of President Trump’s policies and a return to “normalcy.” But, regardless of how one feels about the Trump era or any of his specific policies, there is no turning back the clock. The elite foreign policy consensus will never be the same. Counterbalance will reckon with what’s next.
