And as the next Administration prepares to take office, what are his assessments of the world’s hot spots, from Syria to Iraq and Afghanistan where service men and women continue to carry out the mission. The Secretary sat down with The Atlantic’s Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg in a wide ranging conversation about the Secretary's approach to innovation, the state of the US military, its role in the world and its future both home and abroad.
