Earlier this week, President Joe Biden told reporters that he had decided how the U.S. will respond to the Iran-backed militia drone attack that killed three American soldiers in Jordan on Sunday. The Biden administration has made it clear that the U.S. does not want war with Iran; any plans to retaliate could further escalate tensions in the Middle East.

It’s unclear if the mounting foreign conflicts will spill over into the voting booth as Americans head toward a potential Biden-Trump rematch this November.

Joining the editor in chief of The Atlantic and moderator, Jeffrey Goldberg, this week to discuss this and more are Peter Baker, the chief White House correspondent at The New York Times; Susan Glasser, a staff writer at The New Yorker; Lara Seligman, a defense reporter at Politico; and Nancy Youssef, a national-security correspondent at The Wall Street Journal.
