Veteran foreign policy and national security reporter Bill Gertz warns that a culture of “trivialization” about foreign policy and national security is growing in the U.S. — and it’s leading to an ignorant complacency about America’s precarious position in the world.

“There’s been somewhat of a kind of trivialization in Americans especially among younger people who seem less interested in world affairs and national security affairs,” Gertz said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller. ”I think that changed back in 2001, with the 9/11 attacks, but it’s been 13 years since then… and because the media is not really focused on the threats facing the country, I think a lot of people are really unaware of what’s going on. ”

Award-winning journalist Bill Gertz dismantles Obama’s provocative policies of appeasement

By Ginni Thomas.

In an increasingly dangerous world where most Americans are distracted by busy lives and domestic politics, an award-winning national security reporter, Bill Gertz, is watching a radical, progressive transformation of America’s image and capabilities.

And Gertz is underwhelmed with Republican efforts to challenge, expose or stop the changes that are already underway.

He has spent 30 years in the news business and now works as a senior editor of the Washington Free Beacon, a online site for investigative reporting, and as a national security columnist for the Washington Times. An author of six books with significant contacts and experience, he is known for breaking important national security and intelligence news.

He agreed to speak with The Daily Caller to connect the dots between America’s threats and an array of utopian Obama policies that put Americans at greater risk. To Gertz, Obama is “remaking America into a European socialist power.”

In this two-part video interview, Gertz says Obama’s statecraft can best be summarized as “appeasement-oriented policies.”
