More than five years after the United States’ invasion of Iraq and well over six years after the beginning of combat operations in Afghanistan, the United States faces numerous challenges to its national security interests in the greater Middle East and significant hurdles in dealing with other diplomatic and humanitarian crises around the world. Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE), a distinguished member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, will discuss these issues and take questions from members of the working press. Hagel is the author of America: Our Next Chapter, a straight forward examination of the current state of our nation that provides substantial proposals for the challenges of the 21st century.
