We have a question. What kind of a Biden administration? Are we going to see what kind of a Harris administration might we see? Well, tell me, Troy wrote a really interesting piece that I wrote in politico about that is Joe Biden setting himself up and his administration up for failure by creating a conflict in some of the most important positions in the White House. Heavy Troy joins us Now he is the presidential historian, former White House aide. He's got a book out. Which is incredible. It talks about the story we're about to talk about right now. The book is called Fight House rivalries in the White House from Truman to Trump heavy Choi joins us now in the Hugh Hewitt show. To be good to talk to you. How are you this morning? I'm great, Bob. Thanks for having me on really appreciated. What a great article you wrote. I mean, the comparison that you made between the John Kerry Tony Blinken potential relationship here in the Secretary of State's office, with John Kerry being kind of You know, positioned as potentially being more powerful with Cabinet level powers than blinking as secretary of state. The comparison to the Eisenhower administration is simply remarkable. I'm gonna let you kind of give us the thumbnail sketch of that number follow up. I'd be happy to look, I saw this carry Blake in relationships that they're talking about. And it just struck me that this is something I talk about. In my book Fight house that you had in the 19 fifties. Eisenhower wasn't happy with Direction of disarmament policy, which is kind of like, I guess maybe the climate policy of the day and it was the number one issue in the Republican Party. Just like climate is a big issue in the Democrat Party, and he Eisenhower. Said. Well, John Foster Dulles Secret State Not working fast enough. Let me bring in Harold Stassen. Who many of us No no as this guy who ran for president too many times, But at the time, Harold Saxon was this young up and coming guy. Who had just been governor of Minnesota is very talented, and he said, Let's bring this guy and make him the lead negotiator on climate give him Cabinet rank and The New York Times loved this, and they called him. The secretary for Peace, which really irked Foster Dulles, who said What does that make me the Secretary for war? So these guys were poised to fight from minute one. And it sounded very similar to weigh that carried Lincoln's relationship set up today. Yeah, now And as you point out in the article, this did not end well, really for either guy, But, you know, in the end, Dulles, you know, ends up prevailing. Tell us, you know, by the way you mistaking likes that climate because it is a great analogy. You said climate when you meant to say disarmament. In this particular case, But it is a great analogy or John Kerry is being given the I don't know what would we call them the secretary for for climate, climate change or climate regulation or whatever. And what does that mean? If he is unable to refuse, empowered rather to negotiate with foreign countries as it pertains to Paris climate accords, etcetera, etcetera, does he have to get clearance from Lincoln? Who is the actual secretary of state, or is he going to be off on his own? Yeah, that's that's a great question. And then the flip side is interesting question, too, because Carrie is a former secretary of state is going to be sitting on the National Security Council. And what if issues come up related to the Middle East or Russia or China? Policy? Isn't Carrie gonna be weighing in and will people be looking to him is the former secretary of state so That it could create tensions. Both on the climate front is, Blinken said, Hey, why don't I get way out of the secretary state? And then on the other issues, Carrie might feel like he wants to weigh in on everything. You know, it's it's kind of interesting is you make this great comparison in the article, which again comes from your book about Stassen handing in his resignation, and essentially, you know, Dulles, one that power struggle If you will, you know, Stassen was the new and up and comer. And in this case, the guy who's been handed a cabinet level position or a position that isn't Cabinet level but being given Cabinet powers Is the old guard is there as you say, the former secretary of state who's already got relationships and in fact, some people may accuse him of violating the Logan Act, which you know sometimes gets kicked around now because he has continued to the O to carry on relations with a lot of other foreign leaders. But this is John care. He's the He's the old dog here and use you point out in your article. He's got an ego that is outside even for Washington, D. C. Can you see him taking any orders whatsoever from somebody like blanket? I think it's gonna be hard and then I do point out the issue. That ego is a huge part of this, and Carrie was often voted the most egotistical senator, so I think it's going to be hard for him to step back on the on the other side. Let me say that everybody does say that Blinking is a nice guy, which could be a good thing meaning and nice guys left after getting the sites or it could be a bad thing. That in my book and fight house, I find that sometimes the nice guys in the White House fights get stepped on and don't stand up in themselves. And that leaves detention as well. Tell us this heavy, Troy. Why blinking Because you know very nice guys You're talking about not extraordinarily experienced in this certainly not as much as a former secretary himself like John Kerry. Why? Tony Blinken. Why is that a comfort level or comfort zone if you will for Joe Biden. Well, First of all, he's very smart and every day since he's very smart and has worked in foreign policy issues a lot. He just hasn't been a principal is they called the top dogs in Washington, and he has been very loyal to Biden and binds loyal to him, and I think we're seeing that. For the most part buying is trying to pick people that he's comfortable with and has been have been around him A long time. The work left is saying, No, we don't want that. We want the more mochi types. And so I think that's another inherent tension in the administration. But it seems like for some of the top jobs like Chief of staff and secretary of state he's picked. Biden has picked people who have been around him for a long time. So what? Why is he setting himself up to have this potential clash? Then? Who is he? Where do you think you know? In the research for your book? I don't know if you had a chance to dig into this with him. But is he aware of this similarity that you draw here? The parallel between this and the Eisenhower administration? Well, obviously, I've never discussed it with him..

"Spot dot com Grow better. This is fresh air and were speaking with veteran war correspondent Scott Anderson. He has a new book about the early years of the CIA from the end of World War two through the Mid 19 fifties, when the agency was a key instrument of policy in the Cold War with Soviet Union. Anderson's book is the quiet Americans. Historians hate to be asked to play what if, but but let's just do this for a second. You know, you look at when Stalin dies. When was that about 1953? Right? Khrushchev comes to power. He talks about peaceful coexistence. At one point, I think he says, you know. Well, if you guys were forming NATO is mutual defence. Maybe we should join NATO. Ah, you know, he does. Once the Hungarian rebellion occurs, there's a moment where he seems to Relent and say, Okay, you can have the reformist prime minister. I'll pull Soviet troops out of the country will have sort of a common wealth rather than this Soviet client states. And throughout all of these steps, the U. S. Policymakers, led by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles have no interest in courting a friendship with the Soviet Union or encouraging some of these steps. Had they taken a different approach. Would history be different? I think it would be. I think it would be radically different. I often think that that and I think you hit it on the nose that that moment. Ah, in this. Why? Why? My book? Have ends with Hungarian revolution because I think that was the absolute key moment when this cold war could have started to end right there. The Soviet pole bureau at Khrushchev's insistence on October 31st 1956 decided they were pulling out of Hungary and, as you said that they were going to change the relationship of all the eastern European countries with the Soviet Union to being this loose confederation. The next day, November 1st 1956 over the course that night, Khrushchev had a complete change of heart and he goes back to the Politburo the next day and says, Look, if the Americans were going to do anything, they would have done it by now. And if we lose, Hungary were going to lose all the others. This is this is going to become a cascade. So on that day cruise ship and the Polo Bureau completely changed course, and they ordered the tanks back into into Hungary. And of course, this was after three years of there being a number of overtures by the Soviets towards the West for a rapprochement. And being rebuffed every time and what you see after Hungary is the Christians who really had been very much a reformer for the previous three years, he was the one who led the desalinization policy. He becomes more and more of a hard liner to the point that he precipitates the October missile crisis in 1962, But that was absolutely one of those great historical what, if moments if the Americans had played things differently with Hungary? The CIA was, of course, active in other parts of the world. I mean, not just Europe. Quickly the developing world where you know you had a lot of countries that had been European colonies for decades, and we're looking to strike out on independent course in general, what was U. S policy in the third world at a time when they feared Soviet in, you know, ambitions everywhere. Right initially after the underworld war to there was this idea that it was FDR is idea of that We will be a force for fostering democracy in the developing world. That went very quickly by the way side by just the onslaught of events. I think that was really ultimately discarded completely by the time of the Korean War in 1950. Now the United States saw the world as we need to defend what we have. We're not gonna be a force for change. We're going. It's gonna be this defensive policy of protecting people against the spread of communism. So If that means propping up our cozying up to military Dictatorships around the world or despot's than so be it on DH. What you also saw happening at the same time Wass and again as a result of large is of Korea. Was now the United States all of a sudden is supporting the French and the British in maintaining their colonial outposts throughout the world, especially in Asia. So the United States under FDR that had been demanding the French leave their possessions and into China, Vietnam now in 1950 for the Americans were actually bankrolling the French to stay on in in Vietnam. So there was. This is this is just a complete turnaround in this in this very short span of time, Right? And then there were cases where governments would come to power in some cases through democratic elections and Pursue courses that were regarded as dangerous, You know, expropriating foreign investments, etcetera. You want to give a couple examples off ways in which the CIA dealt quickly and effectively with those Yeah, And I think this is the next stage on and you see this When Eisenhower comes to power, a cz John Foster Dulles is secretary of state Now, now we're not just propping up Dictatorships were creating on the two places that happened early in his administration was in Iran in 1953 and then Guatemala the following year. Both democracies, but they both had functioning working parliaments, and the irony is that neither of them had really had any sort of relations with the Soviet Union. But as you said industrial powers in Iran's case, the oil companies and in Guatemala either United fruit Company that ran Guatemala is essentially a plantation. They began fomenting that these leftist leaders are going to, you know they're going to take their countries into the Soviet orbit, and we've got to get rid of them. So Under orders from on high the CIA over three. Both of those governments the the most big regime in Iran and Arbenz regime in Guatemala, you've covered a lot of conflict zones and the parts of the book of the United States. In some cases, you know, cynically supporting right wing Dictatorships, you know is not exactly news. People have talked about this before. I will say that. The stories that you tell in Europe where the United States the CIA is pursuing these really foolhardy missions against Eastern European.

"In for Terry Gross. We're speaking with Scott Anderson. He's a veteran war correspondent who's written two novels and for nonfiction books. His latest looks at the early years of the CIA from the end of World War two through the mid 1950. He says It was a time when American goodwill in the post colonial world was squandered by ill advised covert operations, some of which toppled democratically elected governments in the developing world. His book is called the Quiet Americans. You know, in 1952 in Dwight Eisenhower is elected president. He appoints as secretary of state John Foster dollars, who is the brother of Alan Dollars who headed the CIA? Both were corporate lawyers in their civilian lives. Describe the approach that the secretary of state John Foster Dulles, brought to the challenge of dealing with the Soviet Union. Dulles is just a remarkable figure. And from my vantage point probably did more damage to American standing in the world, then Almost anyone I can think of. In the 20th century John Foster Dulles had this everything was black and white and around the world. You were either with United States or you're with the Soviets. Allowing no countries to be neutral. Essentially, if you were if you were neutral than you were with the other side, but he also had this very bizarre view of the Soviet Union that was simultaneously A power that was trying to take over the world by any means possible, but at the same time about to disintegrate about to fall apart, which, to my mind seems almost comes mutually opposing ideas, but John faster, You'll saw everything through that prism. So any overture From the Soviets was a trick. It was either a trick to enhance your ability to take over or it was a sign of their internal weakness. So if they after someone died The new leaders of Soviet Union expresses interest of peaceful coexistence. They came up with the various peaceful coexistence and extended an olive branch to the west, one that the British and the French wanted to work with. Does shot it down, saying that you know this. It's a trick and it proves how weak they are. Why? Why accept half a loaf when we when we're just about to get the whole thing, so there's very schizophrenic. Foreign policy within the Eisenhower administration, and Eisenhower seemed to really hand over most of the heavy thinking the heavy lifting of Soviet policy. Off to Dulles. And we should note that as the fifties progress, you know the strategic situation changes because United States loses its monopoly on nuclear weapons. And there's the possibility increasingly of a nuclear war, which no one wants. So it makes these you know, kind of brush fire encounters or covert operations kind of A central front and so Della's. His perspective was, we have to maintain maximum pressure on the Soviet Union to hasten its disintegration and don't take any peaceful overtures seriously. One of the things that was fascinating about these covert operations, which Michael Burke, one of the people you write about supervised, sending hundreds of people over and small groups into The Soviet dominated states, mostly to be captured and caught immediately was If if they were actually successful in building a cell of resistance and creating an armed revolt in one of these countries, Poland Czechoslovakia What? What would the United States do? I mean, that's you know, would it lead to military assistance from the West? It's it's. It's absolutely astonishing about that very question seems to have been one that the Eisenhower administration in general and John Foster Dulles and proceed. I never really thought thought through. They stayed with this rhetoric of roll back. We're going to roll back calm is we're going to liberate the so called captive nations of Eastern Europe. So they continued. The infiltration operations all around the world was this idea of, you know, keep pushing against the Soviets, but without really any thought of exactly as you said, how much the world had changed, and it's It's interesting. When Eisenhower came in, he enacted this. This policy called the new Look Policy. And it was this idea that the Americans reserve the right Love to take massive retaliation against Soviet aggression. That being a euphemism for a nuclear first strike and what no one seemed to Khun think through. With the with the new look policy is that what that then did was that locked into place? The dividing line in Europe Because now Western Europe was in In the vital interests of the United States. If the Soviets tried to do something there, it would. It would hasten a nuclear war but the same thing in reverse in Eastern Europe and it really wasn't until You finally had an anti Communist uprising in the east in Eastern Europe in Hungary, in 1956 that the built in contradiction of the new look policy, all of a sudden, you see, it's utterly unworkable. You know, there was a case in in Berlin, where on the the Soviet controlled side of it. There was a strike, which turned into a massive street demonstrations and people were looking for the United States. To act in some way, provide weapons provide strong statements of support. Nothing much happened there and then in 1956. This is a remarkable thing that some will remember. But demonstrations in Hungary kind of progressed into a full on revolt in which The police in some cases turned weapons over to the demonstrators, and they took on. Soviet units in Budapest and and killed a lot of Russians soldiers. This created an enormous crisis described what happened and how the United States reacted. When the great irony of the Hungarian revolution is that you know, after a decade of the CIA trying to foment anti communist uprisings in eastern Europe here, one came and it was spontaneous was not CIA sponsored. The CIA had no idea it was coming, and in fact, it would have been very hard to predict because it really did have this quality of spontaneous combustion. At the same time, there was a precursor that there had been a big liberalisation move that it happened in Poland just the month before, And this is in the early days of Khrushchev, and he is he's clearly trying to liberalize both in the Soviet Union and in the satellite nations of Eastern Europe. So when the hungering revolution blows up literally happened overnight..

The Soviet Pole bureau at Khrushchev's insistence on October 31st 1956 Decided they were pulling out of Hungary and as you said that they were going to change the relationship of all the eastern European countries with the Soviet Union to being this loose confederation The next day, November 1st 1956 over the course that night, Khrushchev had a complete change of heart and he goes back to the Politburo the next day and says, Look, if the Americans were going to do anything, they would have done it by now. And if we lose, Hungary were going to lose all the others. This is this is going to become a cascade. So on that day, Khrushchev and the Poulet bureau completely changed course, and they ordered the tanks back into into Hungary. Um, And of course, this was after you know, three years of there being a number of overtures by the Soviets towards the West for a rapprochement. And being rebuffed every time and what you see after Hungary is the Christians who really had been very much a reformer for the previous three years, he was the one who led the desalinization policy. He becomes more and more of a hard liner to the point that he precipitates the October missile crisis in 1962, But that was absolutely one of those great historical what, if moments if the Americans had played things differently with Hungary? The CIA was, of course, active in other parts of the world. I mean, not just Europe. Quickly in the developing world where you know you had a lot of countries that had been European colonies for decades, and we're looking to strike out on independent course in general, what was U. S policy in the third world at a time when they feared Soviet in, you know, ambitions everywhere. Right initially after the underworld war to there was this idea that it was FDR is idea of that We will be a force for fostering democracy in the developing world. That went very quickly by the way side by just the onslaught of events. I think that was really ultimately discarded completely by the time of the Korean War in 1950. Now the United States saw the world as we need to defend what we have. We're not gonna be a force for change. We're going. It's gonna be this defensive policy of protecting people against Spread of communism. So if that means propping up or cozying up to military Dictatorships around the world or despot's, then so be it on DH. What you also saw happening at the same time was and again as a result of largest of Korea. Was now the United States. All of a sudden is supporting the French and British in maintaining their colonial outposts throughout the world, especially in Asia. So the United States under FDR that had been demanding the French leave their possessions in Indochina. In Vietnam now in 1950 for the Americans were actually bankrolling the French to stay on in Vietnam. So there was this is this is just a complete turnaround in this in this very short spent a time right? Then there were cases where governments would come to power in some cases through democratic elections and pursue courses that were regarded as dangerous, you know, expropriating foreign investments, etcetera. You want to give a couple examples off ways in which the CIA dealt quickly and effectively with those? Yeah, And I think this is the next stage on and you see this when Eisenhower comes to power, and as John Foster Dulles is secretary of state Now. Now we're not just propping up Dictatorships were creating on the two places that happened early in his administration was in Iran in 1953 and then Guatemala the following year. Both democracies, but they both had functioning working parliaments, and the irony is that neither of them had really had any sort of relations with the Soviet Union. But as you said industrial powers in Iran's case, the oil companies and in Guatemala, the either United fruit company that ran Guatemala is essentially a plantation. Days began fomenting that these leftist leaders are going to you know they're going to take their countries into the Soviet orbit, and we've got to get rid of them. So Under orders from on high the CIA over three. Both of those governments that the most today regime in Iran and the Arbenz regime in Guatemala, you've covered a lot of conflict zones and the parts of the book of the United States. In some cases, you know, cynically supporting right wing Dictatorships, you know is not exactly news. People have talked about this before. I will say that. The stories that you tell in Europe where the United States the CIA is pursuing these really foolhardy missions against Eastern European states, which get You know, sincerely intended. Patriots killed time and time and time again, but speak Kind of a lack of clear thinking. A lack of strategy. This this improvisational approach, which is really reckless. Do you think that's changed? Or were you surprised by it? You know, I wasn't surprised by it. I think what happened Wass. One thing I was not aware of until really started t look at this whole period, you know, almost on a day by day account. The barrage of events that were happening constantly. And you know you talk about foreign crises today, and so there's you can't compare to what was happening in the 19 forties 19 fifties. I have this line in the book in one month in 1950. The U. N launched its counter offensive into Korea that pushed the communist back in North Korea. Same month Communist China invaded Tibet. A French garrison of 6000 soldiers in into China was wiped out by, you know, coming story. Ullas and the Polish government arrested 5000 dissidents in 24 hours Dragnet, and I was in one month, so I think these guys were just getting pummeled by so many things happening so quickly. That they just went into this reactive mode of we have to try something. And even if it doesn't work, we don't have the luxury of time to sit back and and think out, thoughtful.

We're speaking with Scott Anderson. He's a veteran war correspondent who's written two novels and four nonfiction books. His latest looks at the early years of the CIA from the end of World War two through the mid 19 fifties. He says It was a time when American goodwill in the post colonial world was squandered by ill advised covert operations, some of which toppled democratically elected governments in the developing world. His book is called the Quiet Americans. You know, in 1952 in Dwight Eisenhower is elected president. He appoints as secretary of state John Foster dollars, who is the brother of Alan Dollars who headed the CIA? Both were corporate lawyers in their civilian lives. Describe the approach that this Secretary of state John Foster Dulles brought to the challenge of dealing with the Soviet Union. Dulles is just a remarkable figure. And from my vantage point probably did more damage to American standing in the world didn't Almost anyone I can think of. In the 20th century John Foster Dulles had this everything was black and white and around the world. You are either with United States or you're with the Soviets. Allowing no countries to be neutral. Essentially, if you were if you were neutral than you were with the other side But he also had this very bizarre view of the Soviet Union that was simultaneously A power that was trying to take over the world by any means possible, but at the same time about to disintegrate about to fall apart. Which, to my mind seems almost kind of mutually opposing ideas. But John faster, Joel saw everything through that prism. So any overture From the Soviets was a trick. It was either a trick to enhance your ability to take over or it was a sign of their internal weakness. So if they after someone died The new leaders of Soviet Union expresses interest of peaceful coexistence. They came up with the faeries, peaceful coexistence and extended an olive branch to the west, one that the British and the French wanted to work with. Dole's shot it down, saying that you know this. It's a trick. Um and it proves how weak they are. Why? Why accept half a loaf when we when we're just about to get the whole thing, So there's this very schizophrenic. Foreign policy within the Eisenhower administration. And Eisenhower seemed to really hand over most of the heavy thinking the heavy lifting of Soviet policy off to Dulles, and we should note that as the fifties progress You know the strategic situation changes because United States loses its monopoly on nuclear weapons, and there's the possibility increasingly of a nuclear war, which no one wants. So it makes These, you know, kind of brush fire encounters or covert operations kind of a central front and you know, so so delicious perspective was, we have to maintain maximum pressure on the Soviet Union to hasten its disintegration. And don't take any peaceful overtures seriously, One of the things that was fascinating about these covert operations, which Michael Burke, one of the people you write about supervised, sending hundreds of people over and small groups into The Soviet dominated states, mostly to be captured and caught immediately was If if they were actually successful in building a resell of resistance and creating an armed revolt in one of these countries, Poland Czechoslovakia. What? What would the United States do? I mean, that's you know, would it lead to military assistance from the West? It's it's It's absolutely astonishing. But that very question seems to have been one that the Eisenhower administration in general and John Foster Dulles and pretty either I never really thought thought through. They were stayed with this rhetoric of roll back. We're going to roll back calm is we're going to liberate the so called captive nations of Eastern Europe. So they continued. The infiltration operations all around the world was was this idea of, you know, keep pushing against the Soviets. But without really any thought of exactly as you said, how much the world had changed and It's It's interesting. When Eisenhower came in, he enacted this. This policy called the new Look Policy. And it was this idea that Americans reserve the right Love to take massive retaliation against Soviet aggression. Mess that being a euphemism for a nuclear first strike. And what no one seemed to Khun Think through with the with the new look policy. Is that what that then? Did I Was that locked into place the dividing line in Europe because now western Europe was in in the in the vital interests of the United States. If the Soviets tried to do something there, it would, it would hasten a nuclear war. But the same thing in reverse in Eastern Europe, and it really wasn't until you finally had an anti communist uprising in the east in eastern Europe in Hungary in 1956 That the built in contradiction of the new look policy. All of a sudden, you see, it's utterly unworkable. You know, there was a case in in Berlin where on the the Soviet controlled side of it. There was a strike, which turned into massive street demonstrations and people were looking for the United States. To act in some way, provide weapons provide strong statements of support. Nothing much happened there and then in 1956. This is a remarkable thing that some will remember. But demonstrations in Hungary kind of progressed into a full on revolt in which The police in some cases turned weapons over to the demonstrators, and they took on. Soviet units in Budapest and and killed a lot of Russians, soldiers. This created an enormous crisis described what happened and how the United States reacted. You know when the great irony of the Hungarian revolution is that you know, after a decade of the CIA trying to foment anti communist uprisings in eastern Europe Here. One came and it was spontaneous was not CIA sponsored. The CIA had no idea it was coming, and in fact, it would have been very hard to predict because it really did have this quality of spontaneous combustion. At the same time, there was a precursor that there had been a big liberalisation. Move it happening. Poland just the month before. And this isn't in the early days of Khrushchev and he is he's clearly trying to liberalize both in the Soviet Union and in in the satellite nations of Eastern Europe. So when the hungering revolution blows up, and it literally happened overnight Um Frank Wisner, who is the head of the covert Operations unit of the CIA. This is his dream come true. This is what he has been fighting for, for for for for the last 10 years. And he argues, we've we've got to. We've been telling them we're going to come to their aid radio for Europe has been telling people to rebel way have to move and the you know the the gray beards back in Washington, all of a sudden realized Or decide We can't because if we do way might trigger the nuclear war that we're all all fearing because we're if we go into Hungary, we are going into the sphere of Soviet influence that could be in violent and contribute the war. So they do nothing. And they let the they just let the revolution be crushed by the Soviets. And you describe how Some of these Hungarian rebels, a CZ. They're hoping they can hold out against the Soviet tanks who are approaching. Keep looking to the western skies for American aircraft. Yeah, it's amazing. I am He's since passed away, but one of the Last American journalists who was in Budapest at the time of the Revolution, A man named Michael Foot He described this just heartbreaking story. On the day that the revolution was getting crushed. November 4th 1956 the the rebels the freedom fighters were being pushed this very small pocket of Budapest. And it was really the last hours and all of a sudden he heard these people who are trapped, cheering and he talked to some hunger inside acquired where they were there, cheering. It's the Americans have just come across the border. The Americans are on their way. And of course, the Americans weren't on their way, and within a few hours, the last of the holdouts had been captured or killed. Ality reintroduce you again. We're gonna take a break here.

"Establish arms must be might be ready for instant action, so that no can tell aggressor may be tempted to Rick his own destruction. And of course, the voice of white David Eisenhower. I'm delighted of I mean, really delighted to welcome Peter Schinkel, dilly program is the author of a new book, I mystery man, the secret lives wives of Robert Cutler, Robert Cutler was the first national security advisor to a president of the United States of America. White d is our. He was also gay. And this book is one of the most fascinating reads, the story of Robert Cutler is absolutely astounding, and we're going to talk with him about this, and I've got so many questions for you, Peter, but first, let me just set it up. Robert Cutler was an American government official the first person appointed as a national security advisor to the president of the United States. He served white Eisenhower in that role between nineteen fifty three and fifty five and then again from fifty seven to fifty eight. Interestingly enough. This man became Eisenhower's eyes, and ears on the world. And his nephew, is great nephew discovered a secret, so Peter, I hope I've set it up for you. Peter Schinkel is with us. Peter, tell us how you discovered about your great uncle. Well, it was during a family vacation. Many years ago about thirteen years ago. Now back in two thousand six I was in Rhode Island with my mother and my aunt and the subject of their ankle. Robert Cutler came up. And my aunt said, well, he was gay, of course. And I said, of course, so it was not, of course at all, but among the family and my mother's generation, they all knew and they all understood this to be true. But it was not widely talked about art and let me ask you the question, because he is also the author of a an executive order that had a huge impact on this question of whether or not well, who should be hired for public office describe that memo. Sure, what you're talking about is the executive order one zero four five zero 'cause I signed by President Eisenhower, in April of nineteen fifty three so about three months after he took office, and that, of course, in that era under the influence of Herbert Jagger, Hoover and Joseph McCarthy and others. There was a lot of turmoil surrounding allegations that there were homosexuals and communists in the federal government. And so during the campaign, nineteen fifty two President Eisenhower had won the support of Senator McCarthy, it's often forgotten that I actually campaigned with McCarthy and built. A tentative alliance with him now. I oppose McCarthy's methods, but he needed his votes to win that election. He needed what would today called McCarthy's base. So he joined forces McCarthy and after he took office and won the election and took office. I felt he had return a favor. And, and he, he himself believed that it was important to get what he considered to be subversives out of the US government. Well, there had been drafted under president Truman a an order that was to tighten security federal employees, because this is something that president Truman, also had agreed need to be done, but Truman never adopted instead left it in draft form. So when I took office in January, fifty three Bobby Cutler had learned about. This draft. And he brought it to ice attention and recommended it and I call this a the a peculiar ban on homosexuals because there was virtually no discussion of why this needed to be done. And there was the, the order itself refers to homosexual homosexual homosexuality as sexual perversion, but it doesn't define it in any manner. And Furthermore, we have no statements from the president at the time as to why it was necessary. But in some. Robert Cutler's recommendation and after some process, it was put into place and it set the stage for a ban on homosexuals in the federal government reportedly, as many as ten thousand were driven out of the federal government, some committed suicide of many had their lives thrown into utter disarray. It was a it was a terrible time and your great uncle. What's point out was gay? I would just want to let everybody know it's executive order one, oh, four five oh. Signed on April twenty-seventh nineteen hundred and fifty three we should also point out that you're right. Uncle on March thirty first nineteen fifty-five received the medal of freedom for his outstanding contribution to the security, and defence of our nation. I want you to describe his role with Eisenhower as national security adviser, and how they linked. Yup. Sure. Well, they, they I got to know each other at the end of the world. Segue war about which Bobby color finished with the rank of Brigadier General, and Bobby soon, joined with his friend from Boston Senator Henry Cabot lodge in a few years. I should say, let me just interrupt Henry Cabot lodge junior who was the United States Senator from Massachusetts. And in nineteen fifty two was instrumental in getting Eisenhower to run for president of the United States. As a Republican. Go ahead. Exactly. And after I was in fact, nominated and election say that Bobby color also helped him winning the nomination, I invited him to go on his campaign train as he went around the United States in the fall of nineteen fifty two. And so he developed a very strong relationship with Ike and that included working on an array of national security issues, including the, the idea of advancing or developing a little neglected or a somewhat neglected body of the federal government, the national Security Council and making it into the preeminent tool for creating national security policy in the government, I actually gave to campaign speeches during the campaign. In the fall of nineteen fifty urging the national Security Council be revamped and expanded. And and use more effectively, now, let me ask you because your great uncle was horrified by the front of a nuclear holocaust. And you know that on the biographer of herald staff, and they formed a common front, if you will, in dealing with explain to us what got Bobby Cutler, so worked up about a potential for nuclear war. Well, the first thing was that in nineteen fifty three he invited j Robert Oppenheimer the father of the nuclear bomb and director of the Los Alamos laboratory to come into the national Security Council and speak to the national security outs. So about the threat of a nuclear war by that time up in Heimer had become extremely concerned about the risks of nuclear war. Let's remind everybody in south point, the Russians the Soviet Union had a nuclear weapon, United States had a nuclear weapon, and there was a fear that these two superpowers might engage in a nuclear confrontation. Go ahead. That's right. And they were both developing nuclear arsenals at that time at a at a at a rapid pace already in nineteen fifty three and Oppenheimer was horrified by this. And he urged president, I how to adopt a policy of candor in which the president would speak more openly we as the American people and. Is an speech in one thousand nine hundred fifty three before the United Nations and your great, uncle had a big hand in that describe it. Well, he helped him develop that speech and he helped him by supporting Oppenheimer and, and urging this policy of candor, he set the stage for that speech, and ultimately, while Oppenheimer would be separated from his role in the government out of concerns that he was a communist that speech would lay the stage for a lay the groundwork for creation of the International Atomic Energy agency, and that would go on to the body that it is today, the preeminent mechanism for fighting the spread of nuclear weapons. Now, I haven't front of me the minutes of the one hundred and fifty fifth meeting of the national Security Council on Thursday, July. Sixteenth nineteen fifty three and it says, president, of course, the president of the United States, presiding the vice president. The secretary of state. John Foster Dulles Charlie Wilson, who was secretary of defense, Harold, east Asan director of mutual security, and Arthur Fleming director of the office of defense, mobilization and Robert Cutler special assistant to the president. How important was the interaction between your great uncle and Eisenhower? And how did he get along with John Foster Dulles who was secretary of state, by the way, we used to say, they'll Dolor Dulles, go ahead? Well, I you know, I had tremendous confidence in Bobby Cutler, and we're lied upon him to establish the agenda for the NFC meetings and to brief the president prior to those meetings and to ensure that everybody all the members of the NFC were given full information so that they could prepare for those meetings. So I can visioned the NFC as a place where there would be a robust conversation and all the pros and cons of proposed national security policy would be hashed out and argued out, and it wouldn't just be a cursory thing either prior to each meeting, there would be staff members Augusta gating issues, ensuring that they had the proper information necessary to fashion policy. Have to tell you the minutes of this meeting include a memorandum by the special assistant to the president, your great uncle. That is absolutely brilliant. So the national Security Council was not a rubber stamp what Eisenhower envisioned, and what your great uncle envisioned, and what you write about so eloquently in this book is the. Idea of putting everything out on the table and really arguing about of is that correct? That's right. That's right. So Cutler is, is considered the preeminent example of the national security adviser, who acts as an honest broker, which means that he gives everybody a chance to have their say, on an issue if they want to, or let me ask then okay, go ahead. The other side of that policy would be exemplified just in the next term under president Kennedy and many others subsequent, national security, advisors where they take a more advisory role, so where they recommend policy, and they advocate for it, and they're not so concerned about giving everybody a chance to have their say, and to comment and to point out to probe to pointed problems, very different than the Trump White House. I just want to ask you. A mentioned some names, I just want you to describe Bobby, Cutler's relationship with them. I white Eisenhower. Close friend, a tremendous, Bobby. I guess this hero John's. He go ahead. John Foster Dulles, who was secretary of state and a very powerful figure. I think Bobby spectral relationship with John Foster Dulles, he nonetheless by nine hundred fifty seven became extremely concerned that he was failing to, to conduct his affairs conduct the national affairs properly with the Soviets would are the risk of war of war. Breaking out my old boss. Harold stassen. I think my impression is that Bobby respected herald staff, and as a, a truly committed civil servant, a person who wanted to do the right thing, and a very smart man. Richard nixon. Good question. There's lots of little chitchat and postcards between Bobby color and Richard Nixon. But I think that, you know, Bobby seem to go gone quickly toward wreck investigating that. The idea of -ike dumping dick Nixon during the nineteen fifty two campaigns d-6. Oh, fifty two in the dump Nixon, that was an fifty six fifty two. It was the checkers scandal. Aware was accused of corruption. Right. Right. And you're thinking of fifty six when it rose again, governor staff, considered that as a decade, but I'm seeking fifty two. I think that color kind of held Nixon at an arm's length but he worked with him. Nonetheless, four one five, eight zero eight zero eight ten I already have people calling, we have a lot to talk about. And I want to remind you that, Peter Schinkel will be at the Commonwealth club on may twenty third at twelve noon. That's at one ten embarked Darrow. Tickets are still available.

"And he feared what he called the garrison state, which was that the military would just take over interesting that a general worried that the military would take over. But he obviously knew where he was coming from. And so he was determined to save money. Believe it or not the great general Eisenhower through these very scary years of the Cold War, actually, cut defense spending, even as he was beefing up rockets and missiles and bombers to be able to wage of not having nuclear threat. He was cutting the military budget because he wanted to basically to keep the budget and balance not make the military gets too strong. I mean, your listeners may remember the phrase, the military industrial complex Eisenhower warned against that. At the end of his. Presidency. But in fact, he was doing his best to control it all the way during his his his presidency now. However, he was no pacifist. He didn't want to the folded tent stack arms and go home. He felt that we had to face off against Soviet communism, which he believed was expansionist and just by looking at the map. You could see why the Soviets after World War Two were very much on the March. So yeah, had this delicate balancing act of trying to keep the defense spending from getting out of control, but at the same time facing off against the Soviet Union and his secret weapon, the one that didn't cost anything on the federal budget was his ability to bluff, he was a great card player was he better at poker than bridge or graded both heaven. Well, they he switch to bridge from poker because you was a great poker player West Point and in the army, but he was taking so much money from his fellow officers that it was her. Putting his career. So we had to give up ochre and switch to bridge. He was a very good bridge player. But he never forgot how to bluff. And he never forgot how to stare down his opponent. And and how you know all these poker cliches wanted to hold them, and when to fold them, and and he he he just knew instinctively how to do that. And he was just a champion buffer will come to the Cold War and ice bluff and the crises of the nineteen fifties. Which if you all remember them as Pacific, you're wrong. There was nothing, but war conflicts threat death, a bomb shelters. However, we go back to the winter fifty two there's a moment in your telling Evan in which has to be convinced to run for the presidency. And a man puts together a show for him and Madison Square Garden eighteen thousand people come and I'm just flabbergasted to see that Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and Clark Gable? And Mary Martin all made appearances to urge to run. Well, there was a great showman than textile car. Do you put on this incredible demonstration, Madison Square Garden, everybody chanting? We like Ike we want like, and they made a movie of it and an ABA tricks woman aviator in Jackie Cochran fluid. Over to Paris were Eisenhower was head of NATO was premed allied commander of NATO and showed him the movie, and is now is so moved by this public outpouring demand for him that he wept and he finally said to Jackie Talim. Okay. Go home and tell them that they'll do it. He had been under tremendous pressure for years really to throw his hat in the ring. He had was enlisted. He was military, man. He didn't really want in the lake politics. Although he was really very good politician. But this finally attorney in Maimi got together as wife Mamie got together and figured duty duty calls and so homey wet and ran for president October twentieth. In Detroit, he utters the words, I shall go to Korea was that an accident was that cunning to win the election over Stevenson was cutting, especially since Eisenhower didn't know what he was going to do when he got there. It worked the race willing was over as soon as he said that because the idea of the great general coming in and getting out of a war that people Americans people forget this Kris knows the forgotten war. But we lost as many men, they're almost as we did in Vietnam dragged off for three years and Eisenhower wanted to get us out. And he and he did he. Although when he said that he didn't know quite what he was doing ended up bluffing. He basically threaten to use nuclear weapons in North Korea, unless the Chinese communists and the Soviets backed off North Koreans backed off and they did a couple of details about Eisenhower's. Personality you emphasize and all of the correspondence in your book site. He had a very bad temper temper that he struggled to control was that a threat to his health when he was a younger man because it certainly was when he was in the White House. Well, he's an interesting combination of tremendous self-control, this warm, benign smile and his ability to keep his temper and a seething temper. He kept it bottled up. It was a doctor's worried that he was going to basically pop a cork he had a heart attack in nineteen fifty five stroke in nineteen fifty seven that they thought was related to his temper he hit a temporary hit a a artery with throb on the side of his head that would scare people because it would become engorged only got mad did you? Find anecdotes have him doing the same thing when he was in North Africa or a planning for d day. Did he throw fits like that? When he was that of Shaef because my stories all point to the fact that he was coming everybody down all the time. He was but that's the. Thing. I mean, he's he was known as the terrible terrible, Mr. bang to his own staff with his own staff. He was explosive with his allies. He was soothing and therefore he comes into the White House. And now we have to assemble the drama to persona. Let's start with the Dulles brothers Allen and John Foster Dulles John Foster Dulles is the man who becomes secretary of state. What was Eisenhower's opinion of him when he hired him thought he was kind of a long winded preachy bore, but he came to like Dallas, and he used them as sort of a good cop bad cop way. He lets John Foster Dulles kind of be mannequin and warned against the forces of darkness which allowed Eisenhower to play the benign good cop. In fact, I was calling all the shots and using John Foster dolls is kind of his his attack, man. And then Allen Dulles who becomes DC. I did Eisenhower have a good opinion of Allen Dulles. He did initially. Allen Dulles who have been a great spymaster in World War Two. And as Eisenhower said, it takes a strange kind of genius to run the CIA. So if I. Now is all four Allen does. But he over time. He lost faith in Dallas. And Eisenhower surrounds himself with men with stag only parties, he any. In fact, you emphasize how he likes westerns that don't have female leads in them. That was the way he conducted his White House is it just us looking back from the twenty first century that this looks strange anybody think at the top. No, I mean, no. The nineteen fifties. It was just a different time. And the idea that the president would have stag dinners and only stag dinners for only males. Nobody batted in Iowa at that. That was just the way it was men men and women were women in that particular era, especially and I did not take any grief at the time. It looks very kind of retro. He did. Now, I should say he had a good marriage. Although.

"It's like the war state, the rise of the military industrial complex or something like that written by Michael Swanson, very very good. The other one would be the brothers, and it's about on Alan and John Foster Dulles and that was written by Stephen Kinzer. I think that you can't completely understand the state of the military industrial complex if you haven't understood the history of how the CIA came to be and what happened with the CIA through the forties. Fifties sixties, I'm you get into some ten foil hat territory, but there's quite a bit of both. Neither of those books are conspiratorial. They're just pretty factual, I'm, but there was a pretty big of concerted movement building up through the fifties and into the sixties. And then there was some significant events that happened in the sixties that. The course of the nation and an in effect. I think that the CIA kind of it started out as just supposed to be a small operational unit. And it be in exploded into gigantic force that ultimately kind of took over the thrust of the the US government, and it was JFK wanting to restrain that among other things that got him taken down. And then every president since then has all been approved by the intelligence community until Trump. And that's what was so significant about the election of Trump, regardless of whether he's good or bad. He wasn't approved. He was a wild car usage. So that suggestion then is that the military industrial complex these intelligence communities of the ones who really run the country, and they're the ones who are really making the decisions in effect. Yeah. Let's an inter-. It's interesting. I mean, Amy if you can if you can dig up those two books and just three. Oh them into the private group. So they've got they've got access links to them. Maybe I'll dig one up and listen. It sounds interesting to me, I'm not I'm not a conspiracy theory guy. But I just know that there's a whole lot of truth inside of any conspiracy. So it be interesting reading, but it's just it's just wealthy connected. Powerful people who are at a level of wealth and power that leaves them on an independent of of realistic oversight. So they and then they just operate in their own self interest. And so they have international global connections, and they're all pursuing specific financial and and and global goal on the back of that. And I will leave you guys with this today. I watched a great documentary on Roger stone, that's on Netflix. And and it was it goes through. I mean, they interviewed Paul Manafort, they interviewed ball Manafort, this was long before he was indicted, and or anyone who well he. Well, see stone and Manafort ran and the biggest lobbying firm in Washington, they invented modern day lobbying before them didn't exist, and it was considered sleazy and kind of walks you through who these guys are. And what they did. And it wasn't. It wasn't a hatchet job on stone either. He basically 'cause they basically said, hey, here's who he says he is. Here's what some other people say about him. They didn't cast him in a good light. But stone gave them access brought him into his home show them ever talked with them. He was Donald Trump is in is in the documentary. And so I mean, I I felt like it was a really well put together documentary that really talked about a lot of the things that Roger stone was involved with and that he is unabashedly, you know, happy to tell you about and and so you guys can go check that out. That was a really really great piece for those of you who are politically. Inclined. But for the rest of you, go get the book on the Cold War and the CIA, and we will be back here on Friday. It is Friday. Right swings. They right now be back on Friday. Do this all over again until then be safe? Be good talk to you..

"There's I think some frustration because I think there's a seeming in some places might include Brussels EU institutions amongst this that they should be places areas in which the EU and the United States could work constructively. A good example is China. So here in Germany, there's a very interesting change happening right now. Traditionally China has been seen as opportunity to Germany's exports a huge new market. Now, there's growing concern about things like industrial espionage. And there's room is that while they might be banned from from building the five G network here. Now, there are obviously lots of similar concerns in the United States as well about reciprocity of marketaxess. Now, these not to the European Union the United States should be. Working together on this to tackle this issue. But instead there is each other's throats because they have their own trade dispute going on there have been some very heated Stoltze between these trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom and robot lighthizer, the US trade Representative in Washington recently because this issue is now becoming such a stumbling block in relations in transatlantic relations. It makes it that much harder to the Europeans and the Americans to work together on the streets weather should see eye-to-eye Korea on the security side of that relationship. Obviously some of the ways that the president talks about NATO are highly unusual and a real break with with past American presidents. But one thing that you did hear from past presidents was that that European countries were not spending enough on their own defense that they should be stepping up more in terms of their military spending is a silver lining of this that some of that is happening that Europe is looking at at the US as a potentially unreliable partner, and one of the things that they're saying is that they do need to shoulder more of their own military defense burden. Yeah. That's funny. It is kind of a silver lining that the United States is now so unreliable to the countries who pledged to defend each other that they are. So scared that we won't show up when they need us that they are starting to do more. But if you track very carefully the increases in European defense spending. They start going up after the Russian invasion of Ukraine that the seizure of Crimea, the invasion of the dumb best and eastern Ukraine is when European start getting nervous and start reinvesting. It actually predates. Donald Trump's arrival. Your other point is exactly right. Every American president has always thought that Europeans should do more. There minutes from national Security Council meetings in nineteen fifty six in which Dwight Eisenhower as president and John Foster Dulles as secretary of state are bemoaning the. Fact that the NATO idea has probably run its course because Europeans just don't want to defend themselves. Tom is there a sense in Europe that, you know, win the Trump administration ends whether that's two years from now six years from now five months from now, whatever that is that there's an ability to go back to the way the relationship was before are they looking at the changes in US behavior as an oddity of this president or are they looking at it as a permanent change in the US posture. I think that's a really good question. My feeling is in most places. Most governments are probably waiting slash hoping that we will have a return to something like the status quo ante, and there isn't assumption that because Trump's approval ratings are so low that he will probably get tossed from office at the next election. If the if congress doesn't get to him first that said, I think there was a ceiling in in some circles that the old certainties the old guarantees that the transatlantic relationship. Is foundation of the liberal, which is the basis for everything. That's wonderful the nice and happy world that Europeans constructed for themselves. There's a feeling that that may not come back, or at least it may not come back in precisely the same form as we knew it four off rule. Trump won election in the United States on an America.
