Council Guest Makes Weekend News
On February 15, Edward (Ned) Price was meeting with the Council's Global Forum members and discussing his service in the Obama White House with the National Security Council. A week later, he's the headline-making security analyst who resigned from the CIA and wrote about it in The Washington Post.

Over the weekend, he set off a bit of a media storm with his opinion column headlined:
"I didn’t think I’d ever leave the CIA. But because of Trump, I quit."

Price is from Dallas and worked on the 2002 U.S. Senate campaign of former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk. Price is a summa cum laude graduate of Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and he earned a Master's Degree in public policy from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.
