When counterterrorism adviser Richard Clarke warned the George W. Bush administration about Al Qaeda before 9/11, he was largely ignored. In his new book, “Warnings,” Clarke and co-author R.P. Eddy argue that all too often, the U.S. misses signs of likely disasters and incursions. Clarke joins us to discuss the science of anticipating calamity and how the U.S. can develop a better system for identifying and understanding future threats. We’ll also get his take on the North Korea crisis and Russian cybersecurity threats.
