Current National Security Priorities with General Barry McCaffrey

On Wednesday May 10, the Council hosted General Barry McCaffrey, USA (Ret.) for a discussion on current national security priorities. The conversation was moderated by Karl Ege, Senior Counsel at Perkins Coie LLP. Topics addressed included what we should and shouldn’t do when dealing with the rogue nation of North Korea as well as the national security elements of global climate change, an assertive China, and what Russia’s foreign policy decisions will mean for U.S. National security. Furthermore General McCaffrey, a frequent guest on NBC, spoke on the current relationship between the media and the military. 

Thank you to Perkins Coie for once again hosting a Council Community Program!
