With the formal publication of The First Assassin last week, I neglected to link to last week’s NRO podcast. It features James Robbins, author of This Time We Win: Revisiting the Tet Offensive. We discuss why the Tet Offensive was a turning point during the Vietnam War, why it remains controversial today, and what lessons it holds for America’s 21st-century military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
This week’s NRO podcast, posted this morning, is with Paul Kengor, author Dupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. Kengor names names and says that the biggest dupe in American history is John Dewey. He also praises the legacy of non-dupes, especially anti-Communist Democrats during the Cold War.
Next week’s podcast: Rochelle Schweizer on Nancy Pelosi.
