Tomorrow night, Thursday, I will be speaking at the Tucson Committee on Foreign Relations. Regrettably, I show up at about 4 pm, do a television interview, and then the dinner and return to Washington the next day at 6 am — so no coffee house gatherings this round.
On Friday, I am going to participate in a roundtable discussion with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and then participate in a dinner with Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs R. Nicholas Burns, who I saw tonight as well at the Atlantic Council. I’ll have something posted on Nick Burns’ speech tomorrow.
Last night, I organized a salon dinner for Senator Chuck Hagel on the topic of getting America’s national security portfolio back in shape. It was a fantastic evening — and need to get that material posted as well, probably tomorrow during the air flight.
Sorry I’m dragging on a few of these interesting sessions — including more commentary on the Iran conference last week, but I’ll get the key parts up soon.
