Bogus Foreign Policy Narratives Go Unchallenged

by Ted Galen Carpenter

“One maddening feature of foreign policy debates in the United States is how frequently journalists and policy experts fail to challenge dominant narratives even when those narratives have glaring defects. Such malfeasance has facilitated a growing list of Washington’s policy blunders and outright debacles. Yet the tendency to accept the U.S. government’s version of the issues at stake in any new crisis appears to be getting worse rather than better.” (05/15/23)
