Foreign Policy Focus

Foreign Policy Focus is a podcast hosted by me, Kyle! It covers current events overseas and how those events affect you at home. While US military operations in the Middle East seem like they are on the other side of the world, they have real impacts on the everyday lives of Americans. Wars are the most costly of all US government actions and politicians use them to strip away rights of Americans. Knowing what your government is doing around the globe will give you insight into what they are doing at home.

On FPF #300, Peter Van Buren joins the show to talk his books. Peter discusses his book Hooper's War and moral injury. Peter explains how war can do more than injure someone physically, their understanding of right and wrong can be damaged as well. 

I ask Peter about his time as a State Department official working on nation-building projects in Iraq, and his book about that time We Meant Well. He gives a few examples of why the nation-building projects failed. 

Peter Van Buren is a former State Department employee and is now a writer. He is the author of Hooper's War and We Meant Well. Peter's website is WeMeantWell.com.
