DACOR: Intelligence in the Age of Terror
For General Michael Hayden, playing to the edge means playing so close to the line that you get chalk dust on your cleats. The only person to ever helm both the CIA and NSA, at a time of heinous new threats and wrenching change, he believes that to play back you may protect yourself, but you will be less successful in protecting America. Hayden shares how this principle guided him through some of the most telling events in the history of American national security in his book, Playing to the Edge: American Intelligence in the Age of Terror. Join DACOR for a discussion with General Michael Hayden, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency, on the role of U.S. intelligence in American national security and his thoughts on the future of America's intelligence agencies under the new administration. This event costs $25 and includes lunch. Books will be available for purchase. Please note that this program has a wait list.
