The Assault on Intelligence
Decoding the State of National Security
General Michael V. Hayden
NSA director (1999-2005) & CIA director (2006-09)
Thursday, September 27, 2018 | 6:30 p.m. | Langford Auditorium
(Doors open at 5:30 p.m. This event is not ticketed)
In his newest book, The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies, Hayden argues that the work of American intelligence agencies has never been more important, and yet the community finds itself under siege. He notes that the nation’s truth tellers are being attacked at the same time that America’s international strategy remains undefined in Russia, North Korea and China.
Join Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos as he hosts Gen. Hayden and Distinguished Visiting Professor Jon Meacham for a discussion that drills down into the connections between well-positioned national intelligence and a flourishing democracy.
