George Kennan

George Kennan, the father of containment, potentially the most successful Grand Strategy in the history of the United States, died yesterday. It's a sad day for America. If you're not familliar with Kennan, I'd suggest you check this out.

Incidentally, the Walgreen lectures, the source of Kennan's book American Diplomacy was also the source for the famous essays by Leo Strauss Natural Right and History.
