Panelists from the United States Army War College Eisenhower Series College Program will be the featured speakers at a program to be offered at the Peters Township Public Library in collaboration with the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh from 7-8:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at the library.

The Eisenhower Series College Program encourages dialogue on national security and other public policy issues between students of the Army’s senior educational institution and the public throughout the United States.

With increasing green-on-blue attacks in Afghanistan, conflict continuing in Syria and Gaza, island disputes in Asia, and increasing cyberthreats, the Obama administration will have to contend with and prioritize a wide-ranging set of national security issues over the next four years. How will the U. S. strengthen existing alliances and forge new partnerships in an effort to remain secure? How will the U.S. balance national security priorities with the domestic agenda amidst a recovering economy? These are some of the issues that will be discussed at the program.

McMurray Veterans of Foreign Wars POST 764 is providing support for the 2012 International Program Series hosted by the Peters Township Public Library in partnership with the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh. Register in advance to attend the free program by calling 724-941-9430 or emailing programs@ptlibrary.org.
