James Fallows to Open Conference on America’s “Next Phase” Response to Terrorism


James Fallows will provide the opening comments and set the “context” at the major terrorism conference we are organizing.
Jim Fallows is National Correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly and former Editor-in-Chief of U.S. News and World Report. He also serves as the Chairman of the Board of the New America Foundation and is reportedly a big fan of The Washington Note.
He won the National Magazine Award in 2003 for his important Atlantic article, “Iraq: The 51st State,” and more recently has written widely read pieces relevant to American engagement in the Middle East and to the terrorism challenge including “Success Without Victory” and “Countdown to a Meltdown.”
Fallows will be speaking at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, 6 September at the Washington Hilton. More details available here.
