Junior Fellows Attend Bob Gates Luncheon

The Junior Fellows were privileged to attend a luncheon featuring Robert Gates, former Director of the CIA, former member of the National Security Council, former President of Texas A & M, and former Secretary of Defense for Presidents Bush and Obama.  Gates is the only individual to ever serve as Sec. of Defense and Director of the CIA, and the only person to serve as Sec. of Defense for both Democratic and Republican Presidents.

Gates’ speech was extraordinarily broad, discussing the security threats currently emanating from China, North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Russia, and Central and South America.  It was a sobering but enlightening discussion.

The Junior Fellows brought seven non members to the World Affairs Council Luncheon, providing tickets and transportation to the event.
