The New America Foundation/American Strategy Program is hosting an event today with former Bush administration Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy James K. Glassman.
Glassman is now Executive Director of the George W. Bush Institute and previously served as Chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. He was resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute for twelve years and also previously served as president of the Atlantic Monthly, publisher of the New Republic and as executive vice president of U.S.News & World Report.
Last year, Glassman explored the arena of social networking and public diplomacy at a New America Foundation forum with Glassman titled “Public Diplomacy 2.0“.
He and TWN publisher and American Strategy Program director Steve Clemons will be discussing the role strategic communications can play in helping the United States in Iran.
The event will run from 12:15 pm – 1:45 pm eastern time and will live stream here at The Washington Note.

    This was very interested and informative. However, you neglected to mention Autodesk’s products (Inventor, AutoCAD, Showcase), which seems to be an oversight. Also, at Autodesk University I recently heard of a new 3D holographic technology that could be used in place of 3D printing. Not sure if it has a place in this article but thought I would mention it. Overall a very nice and effective job.

    There are unconfirmed reports that Cuba, a supporter of terrorism, and the subject of a US national emergency, has the capacity to fire nuclear-tipped Hwasong-5 ballistic missiles that may pose the greatest threat to global stability and American security. These missiles have a 300-mile range — there goes Miami, Savannah and Mobile! Up in smoke!
    And some people want to normalize relations with Cuba. Just imagine.

    Gads, stupidity “may” (well) “pose the greatest threat to global stability”. Apparently we have a sufficient amount of it, judging by the fact that people like Glassman can still amass an audience.
    Steve, you OK? Didn’t hit your head or anything, didcha?

    Here’s James K. Glassman (with Michael Doran) in a recent WSJ article:
    “Al Qaeda bombers on U.S. airliners need prompt attention, but it is Iran, a supporter of terrorism now developing the capacity to fire nuclear-tipped missiles, that may pose the greatest threat to global stability and American security.”
    Analysis:
    “a supporter of terrorism”
    That’s anyone not with us.
    “the capacity to fire nuclear-tipped missiles”
    A missile doesn’t know what’s on its tip, and Iran has no nuclear weapons nor does it have a nuclear weapons development program.
    “that may pose the greatest threat to global stability”
    If this is true then why is the US scratching for allies to sanction Iran” beyond the usual UK/France/Germany lackeys? And why do the vast majority of the word’s nations support Iran? Is the whole world stupid?
    “the greatest threat to . . . American security.”
    Oh, come on, Iran in no way threatens American security. Just because President Obama says so, doesn’t make it so, lacking any evidence.

    I don’t need to hear the lunatic fringe here. It’s all around us. TV news is filled with their propaganda.
    Glad to see that those commenting are uniformly dismayed.

    Consider there might be a reason behind Steve’s post choice.
    Like illustrating to us some of the lunatic thinking out there.

    Wow.
    National Emergency on Iran with an economy the size of New Jersey?
    This too weird. This is like Politicians in Weimar Germany picking out a victim to deflect from their corporate leadership backers themselves who ran the ship into the ground. And backed the Party tools who would deliver the goods to steer the people where they needed to go!
    Wondering what is behind this politburo thing at New America? Not good!

    I am appalled at the meanness of the comments!
    Here’s a poor guy stuck with the title “George W Bush Institute director” and not a single word of compassion. Do you think it’s easy to go through life with the name “George W Bush” attached to your name? Geez…
    PS Hey, is the guy also on the board of the Herbert Hoover Institute? Just wondering.

    WASHINGTON, March 10 — In a letter to the Congress, President Obama told lawmakers that he has decided to make the National Emergency on Iran, which will be expired on March 15, continue in effect for one year, because of Iran’s threat to U.S. national interests.
    The national emergency with respect to Iran has been continued for some 10 years since it was announced by the Clinton administration in March 1995, under which the United States can take a series sanctions on Tehran. “The crisis between the United States and Iran resulting from actions and policies of the Government of Iran that led to the declaration of a national emergency on March 15, 1995, has not been resolved,” said the president.///
    So this “national emergency” will be continued. But it’s no big deal — there are currently twenty-two (22) other US “national emergencies” including ones for Cote d’Ivoire and Zimbabwe which have also been renewed by President Obama (according to a law designed to end such foolishness, they must be renewed annually — and they are). I know I lay awake nights worrying about those two, and Iran is no different.
    The “threat to national interests” represented by these 22 “national emergencies” can only be called bizarre. Specifically, Iran threatens nobody.
    Now about those “strategic communications”. . .

    Sorry to see Steve and his camp take a few steps back on Iran.. The world is a differet place today, and we are still so severely intoxicated that we’ve yet to recognize the gross contradictions in our posture, actions, accusations and the words that ultimately become the fundamental liability in advancing America’s global interests and ambitions. The genesis of our problems very much reside within our own borders.

    is it a snobby elitism coupled with a disregard for human life
    based on a complete belief in their paradigm and their paradigm

    I am not sure where we are going with this? I do like hearing the propaganda line…so that we know what they are saying, and can refute point-by-point and line by line. This is worth it so we can get to a New America! This divide-and-conquer thing, and comfort with toppling a government in a NJ sized economy, comes right through.
    “Strategic communications” is that what he’s doing when he talks to American voters about “Iran supporting terrorism”, but leaving out the CIA? Blackwater? Leaving out Nicaragua? Leaving out decades of free flows of US$ to build roads and settlements on disputed land? Or, uranium enriched bombs in the first Gulf War dropped on southern Iraq but never been re-mediated because of sanctions, that served only to generate cancer in a generation of little babies?…destroying families?
    Or talking about “developing the capabilities to launch nuclear tipped missiles”, but never mind the fact that belligerent right-wing controlled antagonistic or failing governments all around them already have nuclear weapons paid for by us? And pointed at Iran? With an economy the size of New Jersey, according to Scott Hill, New America Foundation? Really, NJ could become the biggest most dangerous threat to the US on earth? Boy, we really are in decline!
    This is called “strategic communications” used against US citizens who are supposed to be “created equal” in the US constitution, and are supposed to be self-deterministic about making well-informed decisions to protect themselves, their families, and their chequebooks from pilfering by types like this guys’ bosses, who’ve had their sites on the Pentagon money for 5 decades.
    And…that the “US is in decline” is a point of propaganda?
    Very funny jokers, formerly on the tax-payers’ dime, now funded by George W Bush “think tank” backers.
    Can he get real job? Sounds like he made a mess predicting the stock market, so we can rule out CNBC? Fox could use him, if they thought they could run ‘m on the Rep ticket.

    It boggles the mind why Steve would choose to talk with people with so little credibility. He must have too much time on his hands…

    In the letters section of the Atlantic, A J. Douglas Van Sant, of Stockton, CA ended his response to their article “Dow 35,000” with:
    “I would be willing to bet Glassman and Hassett that even ten years from now, when earnings and dividends should have nearly doubled, the Dow Jones Industrial Average will still be closer to its current level of 11,000 than to their hyperbolic projection of 36,000. ”
    To which James Glassman responded:
    “To J. Douglas Van Sant we say, if the Dow is closer to 10,000 than to 36,000 ten years from now, we will each give $1,000 to the charity of your choice.”
    I am wondering what charity Mr. Van Sant chose.
    Could Steve ask, and ensure us that Mr. Glassman made good on his bet, and is a man of his word?

    Let’s see: talking about Tehran with the same idiot that wrote “Dow, 36,000.” With a prediction record like that, I’m sure he’ll have some fascinating insights on American-Iranian relationships.
    You guys really are gluttons for punishment. You sure can take it, although whether that’s a good thing is doubtful to me.
