Counterstrike: The Untold Story of America’s Secret Campaign against Al Qaeda

February 7, 2013
12:30pm – 2:00pm EST
Free Webcast: Link

New York Times reporters Eric Schmitt and Thomas Shanker will speak on their book “Counterstrike: The Untold Story of America’s Secret Campaign against Al Qaeda.” The book tells the story of how a group of analysts in the military, spy agencies, and law enforcement fashioned an innovative and effective new strategy to fight terrorism, unbeknownst to most Americans and in sharp contrast to the cowboy slogans that characterized the U.S. government’s public posture.

This program is part of the Director’s Speaker Series presented by The Ohio State University’s Mershon Center for International Security Studies. The webcast is provided by the Columbus Council on World Affairs.
