Corporate Program past event

The Obama administration must confront a host of formidable international policy obstacles, among them ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the prospect of a nuclear Iran, tensions with Pakistan, and an economically and militarily resurgent China. Bilateral relations that heretofore have provided the bedrock for U.S. regional policy are proving unexpectedly knotty, including America’s relations with Japan. National Security Advisor to two former presidents, head of an internationally respected strategic consulting firm and one of the country’s leading experts on foreign policy matters, Brent Scowcroft offers his thoughts on America’s current foreign policy hurdles and the road ahead.
