Fewer troops, forever wars

Alex and Jen discuss President Trump’s decision to draw down the number of US
troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. They explain the slapdash announcement and
rushed plan, and the inherent tensions between wanting to end a long war and
America’s responsibility to the people of the countries it has invaded. The
gang also turns to what Trump’s Pentagon shake-up really means, and what
President-elect Joe Biden should prepare to inherit in January. References:
The US is drawing down troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. Trump has promised to
bring troops home by Christmas. He didn’t quite get that, even with a new
Pentagon chief. The big question: Will these withdrawals box Biden in on
foreign policy? Trump has also appointed a lot of loyalists to the Pentagon
recently. Shake-ups could reshape foreign policy in the last months of Trump’s
term. And maybe remake the federal bureaucracy. Here’s Trump Inc.’s
investigation. Hosts: Jennifer Williams (@jenn_ruth), senior foreign editor,
