The Hoover Institution - Hoover Institution
"Were we right to go to war in Iraq?"With this question as a point of departure, Peter Robinson explores with Ambassador John Bolton U.S. foreign policy successes and failures during the Bush years and assesses the current challenges from the usual suspects: North Korea, Russia, and Iran.Bolton sees a power shift in the Middle East that would be fundamental, calamitous, and irreversible should Iran get nuclear weapons.A senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, John Bolton served in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush in the Departments of State and Justice. During the administration of George W. Bush he served as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security and as an ambassador to the United Nations.
