Last Chance for Petraeus

The Seattle World Affairs Council is presenting General David Petraeus in its Global Leadership Series. Gen. Petraeus will address: The Military and U.S. Foreign Policy: An Evening With General David Petraeus

Last Chance to Pre-Register!

Posed as questions for Gen. Petraeus to address are:
  • What are the most valuable lessons from the US counterinsurgency efforts in Iraq that will help the US troops being sent to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan?
  • What is the strategy to prevent Pakistan from falling into a state of anarchy and to prevent Pakistan's nuclear arsenal from falling into the hands of the Taliban?
  • Does the defeat of the Tamil Tigers by the Sri Lankan army's offensive operations call into question the modern theory of counterinsurgency, which calls for winning over populations as the key to long-term peace?

The Global Leadership Series brings members of the Puget Sound community together with senior diplomatic, political, cultural, and thought leaders, including current and former heads of state. The Series also provides a forum for leading innovators who have improved or revolutionized global perspectives and practices.

The World Affairs Council presents General David Petraeus, the final speaker in the 2009 Global Leadership Series and the Commander of United States Central Command.
