For the first time in six years, the Commander of U.S. Central Command invited David Ignatius and a small group of journalists to Syria and Iraq to see the operation against ISIS in action. As he lays out in his recent Charlie Rose interview, Ignatius returned with three key takeaways:
- The military machine at work is massive
- The men and women on the ground, working with the opposition and pushing ISIS back, are incredibly impressive
- Unfortunately, the operation rests on “political quicksand”
David Ignatius has been covering the Middle East since 1980, and in his twice-weekly Washington Post column, he brings the vast experience, knowledge, and insight that few foreign affairs writers have. Lauded for “his unparalleled understanding of the intelligence world,” he has turned his experiences with the CIA into nine thrilling bestsellers, including Body of Lies, which was made into a film starring Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio. A frequent guest on Morning Joe and Face the Nation, Ignatius brings his decades of first-hand reporting to his speaking engagements. His topics include:
- ISIS and The World On Fire
- How to Fix The World: A Foreign Policy for the Future
- America At Its Best And Worst: Revived Economic Preeminence; Political Dysfunction
- Cyber World/Cyber War: Fact, Fiction, and the Future of Global Security
