The Attacks on Paris — Podcast November 16, 2015

What Comes After Paris: Do The Most Recent Attacks Change Anything Significant, or Were They Simply One More Atrocity in What Will Prove To Be a Very Long Conflict? Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson discuss the recent terrorist assaults in Paris, and their likely consequences. Was ISIS really behind them? Where did the attackers come from, and who recruited them? Who is supplying them with arms? Are the Saudis implicated? What does France do in response? Is its entire Muslim population now considered a threat to public order? Should the U.S. re-evaluate its foreign policy initiatives, or plan new military strikes in the Middle East in concert with its allies in Europe? The questions are simple enough. Unfortunately, providing meaningful answers to them is far from simple.
