Does Russia Pose a Security Threat to America?

The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel and NYU's Stephen Cohen join MSNBC's Morning Joe to explore whether Russia and US foreign interests are at odds. Drawing on their knowledge of the country, vanden Heuvel and Cohen discuss whether Russia poses a security threat to the US.

With Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday in mind, both Cohen and vanden Heuvel say that many things have changed for the two countries since Reagan and Gorbachev were in power. Vladimir Putin, for one, has served as a "protector of stability, security and order in Russia," vanden Heuvel says, but Russia's ongoing war against terrorism has done little to quell real threats to the country.
