Is it time for the US to leave Incirlik airbase in Turkey? That’s the focus of a recent op-ed by Michael Rubin, who argues that rather than remaining a strategic asset, Incirlik is now a strategic liability. Michael Rubin joins our host Thanos Davelis on The Greek Current to discuss his op-ed - “The one foreign base Biden should abandon” - and explains why it’s time for the US to end its military presence in Turkey. We also look at what impact the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the broader region will have on the Middle East, as countries in the region begin to adjust to this new reality.
Michael Rubin is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a former Pentagon official.
