Professor Andrew Bacevich gives his take on the growing divide between the foreign policy views of the Washington political establishment and those of the rest of the country. Basically, he explains, Americans are sick of fighting endless wars in the middle east, but that’s something that politicians, particularly presidential hopefuls, have not tried to parlay into effective campaign strategy.
