North Korea: A Hinge Moment?

Is the North Korea situation about to be a positive turning point in the U.S. relationship with China or is a "catastrophic military conflict" in our future? David Ignatius, the Washington Post foreign affairs columnist (and the Council's speaker on November 29), examines the possibilities after the "amping up" of rhetoric in the fact of missile threats and vows of violence.  Tickets to the Ignatius program featuring a discussion of foreign affairs and his latest novel, The Quantum Spy, are available here.

Global Forum with David Priess: Trump and Top Secret Intelligence: From the Campaign to the Oval Office
Author; Former Daily Intelligence Briefer, CIA

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

In these early months of his administration, President Donald Trump has appeared to be at odds with the American intelligence community. What does this conflict mean for the White House and for America's overseas challenges?

Intelligence analyst Dr. David Priess is the authoritative voice who can discuss the possibilities and probabilities. He's an award-winning intelligence officer who worked as a CIA daily intelligence briefer for Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

His experience within the intelligence community is the foundation for his work as an analyst and educator and leads to his appearances on major news shows and in print media as a go-to person explaining how a White House attitude can affect a global conundrum from dealing with North Korea to communicating with Russia. 

Join us on Thursday, August 22, as Dr. Priess presents an analysis of today’s relationship between the Trump White House and the clandestine community.
