Joining SOFREP Radio for the first time is Andrew J. Polsky. Polsky has been a professor of political science at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York  (known as CUNY,) as well as Hunter College, and is now the Dean of his department there. Polsky wrote a fascinating book released in 2012, “Elusive Victories: The American Presidency at War.” It covers the decision making by the executive branch during times of war from the dawn of the American Presidency up until when the book was released. Although the book doesn’t cover President Trump for obvious reasons, we get Polsky’s take on what’s happening now. He does a great job at drawing parallels we can infer between decisions made at the executive level of government in the past to current times.
