Robert Gates (Exclusively WSB)

In this presentation, Dr. Gates shares his views about the most pressing threats to global stability and America’s security. He focuses on his experience dealing with these issues as defense secretary under presidents Bush and Obama—an experience recounted vividly in his recent best-selling book, Duty.  He draws heavily on his memoir sharing his views on the way America's government—White House, cabinet agencies, and Congress—works, and too often does not work. We face one of the most complex, dangerous and uncertain international environments today. From rising military tensions with Russia and China, multiple conflicts in the Middle East and the threat of ISIS, to dicey trade relations and economic challenges confronting Europe, Dr. Gates foresees a generation of conflict, and predicts we will continue to face the most challenging international environment since the Cold War for some time to come.
