This week’s Power Vertical Podcast looks at CEPA’s new report “Chaos as a Strategy: Putin’s Promethean Gamble.” Joining the studio are the report’s co-authors, CEPA President Peter B. Doran and CEPA Senior Fellow Donald N. Jensen. Also on the podcast, Peter, Don, and Brian look at CEPA’s new report “Unfinished Business,” which argues for a permanent U.S. presence in Poland.
