Podcast: David Petraeus on Putin's war games


Listen: At the 2022 Munich Security Conference, world leaders are gathering again for the first time in two years at a moment of unprecedented crisis.

Things look grim, no doubt, but when it comes to the state of NATO today, Petraeus says that there is a silver lining.
