CNN’s David Andelman – post COVID, Heat Waves in Pacific Northwest, Putin, and Ukraine

The Not Old Better Show, Issues Briefing Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show.  I’m Paul Vogelzang and as part of our Newsmaker Briefing Interview Series, our guest today is David Andelman.  

David A. Andelman is a veteran foreign correspondent for CNN News, author, and commentator who contributes frequently to CNN on global affairs. A member of the Board of Contributors of USA Today, David Andelman served for more than seven years as Editor & Publisher of World Policy Journal. David Andelman was executive editor of; a domestic and foreign correspondent for The New York Times in New York, Southeast Asia bureau chief, based in Bangkok, and East European bureau chief, based in Belgrade. David Andelman then moved to CBS News where he served for seven years as a Paris correspondent. Andelman followed as a Washington correspondent for CNBC, news editor of Bloomberg News, and Business Editor of the New York Daily News. In the course of his career, he has traveled through and reported from more than 85 countries.

Interestingly, David A. Andelman has joined the Center on National Security as a visiting scholar and director of its Red Lines Project.  The project’s conception arose from President Barack Obama’s failure to enforce a red line in Syria when the dictator Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people, killing more than 1,400. Obama’s cabinet disagreed strongly with his decision to walk away from the red line without military action to remove al-Assad from power. 

David Andelman has that mindset, as does the Red Lines Project, as we try to better understand this very important global security issue, we need to do so right now.

This will be a fascinating interview and we’ll talk about the Red Lines Project, cyber-security, the world in a post-pandemic state, Biden, Putin, and heart health.  You’ll love this interview.  

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, CNN’s David Andelman.
