“We Are Going To Win the Cold War”—A Conversation with Herbert Meyer, Part 3

In this installment of our conversations with Herbert Meyer (part one here, and part two here), we look back at the end of the Cold War, and especially Herb’s prescience in a memo he wrote in the fall of 1983, since declassified, entitled “Why Is the World So Dangerous?” (PDF link). Here he remarks that this memo was not just controversial, but also unwelcome even among many hard-liners in the foreign policy establishment.  (My sound turned out very poor; what’s important is Herb’s sound, not mine, so bear with this.)
