Would you say that the US is in war-time or peace-time? How do you know?
The truth is, the nature of warfare has changed so fundamentally, that we're currently in a war we don't even recognize. It's the war that Russia, China, and other hostile foreign actors are fighting against us — weaponizing social media to undermine our faith in each other, our government, and democracy itself.
World War III is here, it's in cyberspace, and the US is unprepared — and largely unaware.
This week on Your Undivided Attention, we're fortunate to be speaking with Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster. General McMaster was the United States National Security Advisor from 2017 to 2018. He has examined the most critical foreign policy and national security challenges that face the United States, and is devoted to preserving America's standing and security.
H. R. McMaster is a retired United States Army lieutenant general, who served as a commissioned officer for 34 years and was the 26th National Security Advisor of the United States. He holds a PhD in military history and is the author of two books: "Dereliction of Duty: Johnson, McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam," and most recently, "Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World." General McMaster is currently a Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and lecturer in management at Stanford's Graduate School of Business. He hosts the podcast Battlegrounds: International Perspectives on Crucial Challenges to Security and Prosperity.
