Colonel Wilkerson examined the role of ideology in America’s foreign policy efforts in the Middle East. Among the topics he addressed were the role the military had taken in forging foreign policy in recent years, the radical beliefs in government power held by Vice President Cheney and Secretary Rumsfeld, and the development of national security strategy in the early years of George W. Bush’s administration. He also addressed specific areas in which he believed the U.S. had made severe mistakes, such as post-war Iraq planning, policy toward Iran, the Middle East peace process, and North Korea. He also answered questions from the audience.

Colonel Wilkerson is currently the Pamela C. Harriman Visiting Professor of Government at the College of William and Mary and a Professorial Lecturer in the Honors Program at the George Washington University. close
