Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, former National Security Adviser and the Fouad and Michelle Ajami Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, discusses his new book, Battlegrounds: Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World; why the US should not return to the Iran deal, a ‘political disaster masquerading as a diplomatic triumph’; how Saudi Arabia can be ‘part of the solution’ in the Middle East; whether the US can mitigate the potential loss of Turkey as an ally; how his experiences in combat in two Iraq wars informed his approach to Iraq and the region; why he is optimist about Iraq’s future; whether the US can sustain domestic support for US Middle East policy; and some remembrances of Professor Fouad Ajami.
