What To Expect in 2011
Thursday, March 3, 2011
On February 17, 2011 ISW hosted the first Congressional event of the year at a lunch briefing featuring ISW Fellow Lieutenant General James Dubik and ISW Scholars Marisa Cochrane Sullivan, Jeffrey Dressler, and Carl Forsberg. Over 50 congressional staffers were in attendance as panelists discussed Iraq and Afghanistan and what to expect in 2011. General Dubik offered his insight into the security transition in Iraq, discussing his newly released report The U.S. in Iraq Beyond 2011: A Diminishing But Still Vital Role. ISW researchers discussed in depth the United States’ commitment to defeating al-Qaeda, eliminating international and transnational terrorist safehavens, and our progress in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Mark your calendars for our next event March 16th 1-2:30pm "Afghanistan: Regional Stability and Global Security" featuring Dr. Kimberly Kagan, Lieutenant Colonel Joel Rayburn, CNN’s Peter Bergen and moderated by Lieutenant General James Dubik. ISW is pleased to host this event in cooperation with the Reserve Officers Association (ROA).
