The American political system has gone insane. The great Jonathan Rauch makes a guest appearance on the show to discuss his new Atlantic cover story on "How American Politics Went Insane" and what insane politics means for national security. Meanwhile, State Department officials protest President Obama’s decision not to bomb Syria. And the intelligence community lashes out at Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.

Plus, Tamara has some really interesting data on American attitudes towards refugees. And I give a shoutout—and raise a glass—to our friends at War on the Rocks.
