This week on dialogue guests Captain Pete Pagano and Colonel Mark Desens discuss their nine month deployment across Southwest Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean.
Host John Milewski sits down with Captain Porter and Robert Litwak of the Wilson Center for a follow up discussion on the National Strategic Narrative.
It is much easier to explain why something happens than to explain why something does not happen. Former Congressman Lee Hamilton discusses the absence of a terrorist attack on the U.S. homeland since 9/11.
While Saudi Arabia will remain an essential partner for the foreseeable future, the fundamentals of the U.S.-Saudia bilateral relationship require re-examination. Former Congressman Lee Hamilton discusses forging a relationship resting on a broader, deeper, and stronger foundation.
An effective counter-terrorism strategy must seamlessly integrate all the tools of American power into a systematic approach to meet the diversified threat of terrorism, writes former Congressman Lee H. Hamilton.
The short-term objective for the United States amidst the current fighting in the Gaza Strip and Israel should be the cessation of hostilities, says former Congressman Lee Hamilton. There will be no military solution to the rocket attacks or the broader Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only a political one.
For the past six decades, every U.S. president has recognized that achieving peace in the Middle East is a vital national security issue. Former Congressman Lee Hamilton discusses reinvigorating America's efforts to achieve that goal.
Denouncing countries and refusing to talk to them may make us feel better in the short-run—but it makes little sense in the long run, says former Congressman Lee Hamilton. We should be confident in the ideals that have underpinned America's global ascent and confident that those ideals will triumph in the long-run, no matter who sits across the negotiating table.
The United States needs to focus its attention on the conflict in Afghanistan, says former Congressman Lee Hamilton. We need a clear goal and should dedicate the necessary resources to achieving it.
