NAFUSA’s good friend, Charle Savage of the New York Times, has published his second book, “Power Wars: Inside Obama’s Post-9/11 Presidency”. Savage, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, has been a speaker or moderator focusing on national security issues at five of NAFUSA’s recent national conferences.
His earlier book, “Takeover”, described the Bush-Cheney administration’s efforts to expand presidential power. In “Power Wars”, Savage concludes that Obama continued many of the polices of his predecessor and in some cases expanded them. Published by Little, Brown November 3, 2015.
Savage is a Washington correspondent for the New York Times and has been covering post-9/11 legal-policy issues since 2003. A native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, he graduated from Harvard College and holds a master’s degree from Yale Law School.
