America’s Knottiest Quests

Talking Syria and a Political Center With General Wesley Clark, Public Intellectual Michael Lind, and Journalist Peter Beinart

Host Anne-Marie Slaughter is joined by General Wesley Clark, who oversaw the Kosovo campaign in the late ’90s, and shares his thoughts on what the Balkans can teach us about Syria. Slaughter also talks with public intellectual, author, and New America co-founder Michael Lind, journalist Peter Beinart, and Zócalo editorial director Andrés Martinez about the ever-evolving quest for the American Center.

Anne-Marie Slaughter is president and CEO of the New America Foundation, and the Bert G. Kerstetter ’66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University. From 2009–2011 she served as director of policy planning for the U.S. Department of State.
