The Future of Special Operations: A Look at Capabilities, Needs and Threats
In this round table discussion with experts and former operators, we are going to explore the global threats the U.S. faces and the role(s) that the special operations community will play in addressing those threats. We will discuss the actual capabilities our SOF have and what they will need in the near future as well as their limitations in being an extension of U.S. Foreign Policy.
Join the London Center for Policy Research as we ask our expert panel to dissect these questions and offer their thoughts on this topic of utmost importance. The panel will include Herb London, President of the London Center; Lt Col Shaffer, DIA, Army, Senior Fellow and Director of External Communications for the Center for Advanced Defense Studies; Rob DuBois, Navy Seal (RET); Peter O’Brien, Naval Intelligence (RET); Derek Leebaert, Author To Dare and to Conquer: Special Operations and the Destiny of Nations, from Achilles to Al Qaeda; Jed Babbin, Former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense (President George H.W. Bush); Arthur Herman, Scholar, Foreign and Military Policy. Eli. M. Gold, London Center Vice President and Michael Ostrolenk, co-founder of American Conservative Defense Alliance, will moderate the panel.
