Douglas Lute is a former Army Lieutenant General and US ambassador to NATO. He is also featured in Hand-Off: The Foreign Policy George W. Bush Passed to Barack Obama on February 15th. As a young soldier, Douglas never imagined that he would be involved with international affairs.

He would eventually work under Gen. Hugh Shelton, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and experience firsthand the duties of flag-rank officers during 9/11. Douglas comments on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and emphasizes that beating Russia’s blatant imperialist ambitions is simply the right thing to do.

Douglas recounts his time as an officer in the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment and gives an overview of his book. The transition between Presidents Bush and Obama was critical in setting the foundation for the incoming administration, tackling all sorts of societal issues like foreign policy, AIDS, and the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

Douglas currently serves as the CEO of Cambridge Global Advisors, LLC, a certified Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business.
