William Inboden, editor-in-chief of the Texas National Security Review and executive director of the Clements Center for National Security at The University of Texas at Austin, sat down with Amb. Kay Bailey Hutchison, former U.S. senator and U.S. permanent representative to NATO, for the latest episode of the “Horns of a Dilemma” podcast.
The two had a thoughtful and wide-ranging conversation about European security and global energy policy. First, they discussed Inboden’s new book, The Peacemaker: Ronald Reagan in the White House and the World, and how President Eisenhower helped shape President Reagan’s foreign policy strategy. Then they talked about Amb. Hutchison’s tenure at NATO and how the war in Ukraine has affected the alliance. In particular, she touched on the need for U.S. leadership to drive solidarity within the alliance and the importance of continued U.S. support for Ukraine. Finally, the two discussed European views of China and the latest work done by the Kay Bailey Hutchison Energy Center at The University of Texas at Austin.
