Dumping on Democracies, Praising Dictators

Igor speaks with CAP national security experts Kelly Magsamen and Mike Fuchs about the North Korea summit and how to work toward denuclearization.

For analysis of the North Korea summit, Igor is joined by two CAP experts and former top national security and diplomatic advisers in the Obama administration: Kelly Magsamen and Mike Fuchs. Magsamen and Fuchs believe the agreement is long on trust and short on details. They argue that any meaningful deal needs specific steps toward denuclearization and a plan to keep America and its allies safe.
