17 Years at War
Gen. Stanley McChrystal, retired Commander of U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces in Afghanistan who revolutionized the way military agencies coordinate counterterrorism efforts, will reflect on the U.S. since 9/11 during a free public talk on Thursday, January 24, at Duke University.
"Seventeen Years at War: A Conversation with General Stanley McChrystal," will include an audience Q&A. This Terry Sanford Distinguished Lecture will take place in the Sanford School of Public Policy's Fleishman Commons, 5-6:15 p.m. Parking is available for a fee in the Bryan Center Visitor Deck.
A four-star general, McChrystal led the Joint Special Operations Command, which oversees the military's most sensitive forces. His leadership of the JSOC is credited with the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and the death of the Iraqi Al-Qaeda leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in 2006.
The Terry Sanford Distinguished Lecture series is made possible by the William R. Kenan Charitable Trust. This lecture is sponsored by Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy, the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security, Duke's Program in American Grand Strategy, and the Counterterrorism and Public Policy Fellowship Program at the Sanford School of Public Policy.
