In this week’s episode of Intelligence Matters, host Michael Morell speaks with Eric Edelman, former U.S. Ambassador to Turkey and Finland, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, and current co-chair of the National Defense Strategy Commission. Edelman and Morell, who is also a member of the Commission, discuss the contents of its new report evaluating the nation’s defenses in general and the National Defense Strategy in particular.

The two evaluate what steps the President and the U.S. Congress can take to forestall a significant national security crisis.
