During the George W. Bush administration, Zalmay Khalilzad headed the National Security Council portfolio on the Islamic world and served as US Ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the United Nations.
Khalilzad will share his views on America’s strategic challenges with regard to terrorism, Iraq, and Afghanistan at the conference, Cutting the Fuse: Beyond the War on Terrorism, that I am helping to produce along with the University of Chicago’s Robert Pape.
The conference is taking place in the United States Capitol in the new Congressional Auditorium of the Congressional Visitors Center.
Here is the full schedule and a link to RSVP — including talks by Robert Pape, Chief of Naval Operations Gary Roughead, former 9/11 Commission Chair and New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean, Congressman Brian Baird, Nobel Laureate Thomas Schelling, former CIA Acting National Intelligence Officer for terrorism Glenn Carle, among others.
