The phone rings:  It's Barack Obama asking for advice.  He would like you to help him  develop a response to US concerns about the actions of  Russia and China.  Evaluate the  responses of previous administrations in the post­Cold War era as well as his own  administration’s policies. Provide the President with advice on future potential issues  regarding both Russia and China. Explain the costs and benefits of the options you  propose in terms of political support and opposition at home. 3.  The phone rings. It’s Barack again. Now he needs your help on terrorism. Explain the  evolution of America’s counterterrorism policies and the central policy problems.  Critique his administration and previous administrations’ actions, and provide him with  specific recommendations concerning his future policies. To what extent have those  policies been driven by public opinion, bureaucratic politics and the evaluation of  intelligence? Provide a reasoned evaluation of the prospects (positive and negative) for  actually stopping terrorism  in light of the current situation regarding ISIS. 4.
