8/7/20 Stephen Zunes on Susan Rice’s Pro-War Establishment Credentials

Play
Read more
Scott talks to Stephen Zunes about Susan Rice, one of the leading candidates for Joe Biden’s VP pick. Rice fits Biden’s criteria in that she’s a black woman with political experience, but Zunes raises serious concerns about her track record. In particular, Rice turned out to be one of the most hawkish Democrats during her time in the Clinton and Obama administrations, and she played a role in pushing for America’s invasion of Iraq in 2003. Zunes points out that if “a black woman” is Biden’s only important qualification, then he should at least pick someone with better left-wing credentials and with actual ties to the black community—Rice, he says, is virtually indistinguishable in her politics from all the white male establishment war hawks.

Discussed on the show:

“Implications of Pro-War Susan Rice as VP Nominee” (Accuracy.Org)
“Colin Powell’s speech to the UN Security Council” (Brookings)
“Column: No, Susan Rice did not support the Iraq War” (Chicago Tribune)
“Don’t Attack Saddam” (WSJ)
“Susan Rice has Israel’s back” (POLITICO)
“Why Would Biden Pick Susan Rice?” (Defense One)

Susan Rice: Tough Love
Susan Rice served as the United States ambassador to the United Nations during President Barack Obama’s first term in office. She was later appointed by President Obama as National Security Advisor, a position she held until the end of his presidency.

Today she is the Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow at the School of International Service at American University, a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times.

She is the author the New York Times bestseller Tough Love: My Story of Things Worth Fighting For*. In this conversation, Susan and I discuss how her upbringing shaped her skills at mediation, the course corrections she navigated in her career to get better, and how she ensured all perspectives were heard inside President Obama’s National Security Council meetings.
Key Points

Susan’s early experience mediating the arguments between her parents helped her develop resilience that would be useful later.
It’s helpful to separate the behavior from the person. Address inappropriate behavior, and keep it in context with the larger relationship.
“You can get a long way leading a team, even if many members of the team don’t actually agree with the direction you’re steering towards, if they feel that their advice, perspective, recommendations have truly been heard and appreciated.”
When facilitating a critical meeting, ensure the principal attendees receive reading points and preparation well in advance.
Humor, an iron fist, or a velvet glove are all useful tools at the right times. Experience helps you determine what’s best in the moment.
Wisdom from Susan’s dad: “You can’t let other people define you, for you.”
