World War I, National Security Agency and Iran in the Week Ahead

It’s a week that’s heavy in the middle with defense and national security-related events.

On Tuesday, the National Press Club will serve as the site of a news conference with Edwin Fountain, director of the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission, to talk about “Preparing for a National World War I Memorial, 100 Years Later.”

Three Pentagon chief information officers will talk about information technology at a conference on Wednesday that’s being put on by MeriTalk and Brocade. The Foundation for Defense of Democracies brings think tank experts from a variety of political spectrums to discuss the implications of the Gaza conflict. In the evening, National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command leader Adm. Michael Rogers appears at an Intelligence and National Security Alliance dinner.

Thursday: Deputy assistant secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations Jerry White and deputy U.S. envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Arsalan Suleman are among the participants in a Middle East Institute discussion on “Preventing Violence in the Name of God: The Role of Religion in Diplomacy.” The Hudson Institute debates which is scarier: Iran or “non-state Sunni extremism.”

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Bless you!
