This week I welcome Barbara Boland to Wider View. Barbara is foreign policy and national security reporter for The American Conservative. She previously worked as an editor for the Washington Examiner and for CNS News. She is the author of Patton Uncovered, a book about General George Patton in World War II, and her work has appeared on Fox News, The Hill, UK Spectator, and elsewhere. Boland is a graduate of Immaculata University in Pennsylvania.
We discuss two of her recent articles for The American Conservative, How Did a Bronze Star Green Beret End Up Behind Venezuelan 'Bay of Pigs'? and 'Zombie Neocon': How This Iran Contra Architect Is Leading Trump Policy. We also discuss China and the coronavirus accusations by the Trump Administration and the anti-war Right.
