Guests: Gordon Adams and Mark Thompson
On Friday, President Obama nominated Ashton Carter to serve as his fourth defense secretary since he was inaugurated in 2009. Carter would replace Chuck Hagel who, it has been reported, was forced to resign from his post. We’ll look at Hagel’s brief tenure, what we might expect from his successor, and what this all tells about the complicated relationship between the White House and Pentagon. Our guests are GORDON ADAMS, professor of foreign service at American University and distinguished fellow at the Stimson Center, and TIME‘s MARK THOMPSON.
