This podcast discusses Widmer's November 10 New York Times opinion piece, "The War That Never Ended." It also references Brookings Institution's Robert Kagan's recent Public Affairs talk at Carnegie Council—with the relevant part in this YouTube clip—and Widmer's Ethics in Action video, recorded for Global Ethics Day 2018 in October.
