Event description

Description

About the lecture

American intelligence services, constrained by law and with oversight from the executive and both branches of Congress, are thus liable for their actions, but are not immune from politics. Rather than going along with our changing culture and politics, the problems facing our intelligence are avoided by strict vigilance and adherence to the highest professional judgements and ethics – without political considerations.

This event is the fourth Brian Kelley Memorial Lecture and is sponsored by the IWP Alumni Association.
