During this SOFREP exclusive interview with Ryan Zinke, Secretary of Interior designate, US Congressman, former Navy SEAL, and the author of “American Commander: Serving a Country Worth Fighting For and Training the Brave Soldiers Who Lead the Way,” Zinke talks about how America is moving further away from supporting our allies either in the South China Sea as China builds islands in disputed waters or in the Ukraine as Russia is acting as the aggressor. Zinke also mentions some of the mistakes he believed America made in the Iraq war. (Note: this interview was conducted prior to being nominated as the Secretary of Interior)
