Recent headlines have focused on the Bush administration’s efforts to remove the current Iraqi regime and on the domestic and international responses to those efforts. Charles Robb, distinguished professor of law and public policy and a former Virginia governor and U.S. senator, will moderate a discussion on this topic by a panel of national security and foreign policy experts today.

The discussion, “War in Iraq: The U.S. Effort to Remove Hussein,” is held from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. in the Original Building, Room 329, on the Arlington Campus. Co-sponsored by the School of Public Policy and the School of Law, this is the first in a series of law and public policy discussions to be held this fall at the university. The event is open to the public.

The panel includes Frank Gaffney, president and CEO of the Center for Security Policy and a former assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration; Lee Hamilton, director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and former 17-term Indiana congressman and chair of the House International Relations Committee; and Mark Thompson, national security correspondent for Time magazine and contributor to Time‘s Sept. 16 cover story, “Should We Attack Iraq?”
