Ep. 82 Is Krugman Right About Syria?

13 April 2017     |     Tom Woods     |     10

Krugman says Trump’s recent strike on Syria is typical of the man: a one-shot action masquerading as policy. He also says that Obama was right to stay out, since there was no clear way through the morass there. Special guest Daniel McAdams, executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity and co-host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report, joins us for this episode.
