In response to a horrific terror attack, Israel has pledged to defend itself against Hamas and there is risk of war spreading within the region. The geopolitical implications of current events in the Middle East are significant and the United States has deployed substantial military resources nearby. Admiral William H. McRaven, USN (Ret.), former commander of US Special Operations Command, will assess the current situation and its potential impact, regionally and globally. His conversation with Clifford Chanin, Museum Director, continues the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s longstanding commitment to building public understanding of the consequences of terrorism. 

This program was offered virtually in conjunction with the sixth annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum Summit on Security, presented by Fiserv, which brings together many of the world's leading voices from across the public and private sectors to build on the discussion of how we can all make our companies, cities, and nations safer.
