America at Risk: Camus, National Security, and Afghanistan

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Watch the livestream of this event with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Almost nine years after the 9/11 attacks, the United States has yet to confront the threat posed by the extremist and irreconcilable wing of Islam. Former Speaker of the House and AEI senior fellow Newt Gingrich will warn that now is the time to awaken from self-deception about the nature of our enemies and rebuild a bipartisan commitment, in Afghanistan and elsewhere, to defend America. Drawing on the lessons of Camus and Orwell, Gingrich will describe the dangers of a wartime government that uses language and misleading labels to obscure reality.

Watch the recorded livestream below depicting the speech on July 29, 2010 at 2 p.m. (EDT). For more information, click here.
