At a time when violent Islamic extremism distorts Islam and threatens the majority of the world, Ambassador Cunningham will discuss Afghanistan, the Middle East, and challenges posed in this region to the United States and international community. He will review mistakes made since 9/11 and argue that — particularly in today’s political atmosphere — America needs serious discussions that lead to a long-term, sustainable strategy in the region.
