Ben Rhodes said the Obama foreign policy is intended to position the U.S. to lead in this century, and for all countries to participate in what he calls a "rules-based order." In the course of the hour they cover the Iran nuclear deal, how the Cuba negotiations unfolded, combatting terrorism, the promotion of democracy, negotiating for hostages, and the pivot to Asia.  President Obama's deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes spoke with Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic at the Aspen Ideas Festival on June 29, 2015 on "The Obama Doctrine: America's Role in a Complicated World."
