Distinguished Lecture Series- January 10, 2019
"The Importance of the National Security Council" with Dr. James F. Miskel
The National Security Council (NSC) has been and should continue to be one the most important elements of government. It was established in 1947 to ensure that important decisions are based on an objective evaluation of all the relevant options and that the President’s decisions are effectively implemented. The NSC, though, cannot ensure these things if key personnel do not act as honest brokers or if the decision-making process is short-circuited and the options are not thoroughly vetted. Dr. James F. Miskel was a Director for Defense Policy and Arms Control at the NSC during two administrations. He also served as a Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College where he remains an adjunct professor.
Individual Seats to this lecture are available for $35 per person.
