Former CENTCOM Commander General Anthony Zinni is one of those leaders who really “gets” the complexities and nuances of statecraft – an understanding that led him to bravely oppose the Iraq war when it was very unpopular in Washington to do so.
He is also the author of a new book, Leading the Charge: Lessons from the Battlefield to the Boardroom, that provides a no-holds barred condemnation of our nation’s leaders with regard to the Iraq episode and asks what it is that we must do to restore American honor and success.
I will be moderating an event with General Zinni at the New America Foundation today from 12:15 pm – 1:45 pm. The event will stream live here at The Washington Note.
