Join us as we travel to Duke University for a conversation called “17 Years at War: A Conversation with General Stanley McChrystal, US Army (retired)” led by Duke Professor David Schanzer. Buffet reception follows presentation.
This is a Terry Sanford Distinguished Lecture, co-sponsored by the Triangle Center for Homeland Security.
Four-star general Stanley A. McChrystal was called “one of America’s greatest warriors” by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. Now retired, General McChrystal formerly commanded U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) Afghanistan and is the former commander of the premier military counter-terrorism force, Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). He is best known for developing and implementing the counter-insurgency strategy in Afghanistan, and for creating a comprehensive counter-terrorism organization that revolutionized the interagency operating culture.
