Air date:

Short Description: 
Alfred McCoy on Obama's Geopolitical Strategy for Containing China from TUC Radio

The historian Professor McCoy is an expert on U.S. foreign policy, the Philippines, Southeast Asia; global drug trafficking; and CIA covert operations.

He teaches at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his September 2015 piece in Tom Dispatch Grandmaster of the Great Game: Obama's Geopolitical Strategy for Containing China, stands in total contrast to the current views of media pundits as well as the Republican party.

They see Obama as weak, clueless, and indecisive in matters of foreign policy. McCoy provocatively places Obama among the limited number of presidents and public figures whose geopolitical skills - if he is allowed to succeed - will have transformed America s global role.
