World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents General Michael V. Hayden
There is a delicate balance between civil liberty and national security. Retired four-star General Michael Hayden is keenly aware of the conundrum currently at the core of so much heated debate. As the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency, he’s had to make tough calls while walking a fine line between the two during unprecedented global change, terrorism, and proliferation of the new weapons of choice, cyber and information warfare.
In The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies, Hayden offers veteran insights gleaned from decades of experience and outlines why America’s intelligence community is under fire. As Matthew Continetti noted in The New York Times, Hayden’s new book reflects “the social and cultural divide between everyday Americans and the highest level of their government.”
Hayden reveals why he believes many of the premises, structures, processes our Republic has long relied upon are now in jeopardy during this timely program for World Affairs Council members.
