On this installment of ST, we speak with Blaise Misztal, the director of the National Security Program at the Bipartisan Policy Center, which is a Washington-based think tank aimed at developing principled, politically viable policy solutions. Over the years, Misztal has researched a variety national security issues, including U.S.-Turkey relations, Iran and its nuclear program, cybersecurity, stabilizing fragile states, and public diplomacy in the 21st century. He has published op-eds in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, The New Republic, and elsewhere. He recently gave an address to the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations entitled "Allies or Frenemies? U.S.-Turkey Relations in the Erdogan Era," and we spoke with him about this here at KWGS while he was visiting our city.
