Episode Details

Original tape date: March 8, 2016.

First aired: March 21, 2016.

For centuries, the Vatican has used a devil’s advocate to vet all applicants for sainthood. Today, our military, the intelligence community, and the private sector employ a technique known as “red teaming” to test vulnerabilities, play war games, and give an alternative strategic and tactical analysis of a proposed action. Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Micah Zenko, author of a fascinating book called Red Team: How to Succeed by Thinking Like the Enemy, tells Jim Zirin of a principled way to arrive at the right answer.
