Dr. David Kilcullen, Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security And Partner at the Crumpton Group
The current conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq present many challenges to counterinsurgency experts. Dr. David Kilcullen discussed theses challenges and policy options for them. In his discussion he shaped global terrorism and localized guerrilla warfare within the larger framework of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and makes them both understandable and interesting.
Author of “The Accidental Guerilla: Fighting Small Wars in the Midst of a Big One” Dr. Kilcullen brought to the discussion his unique experience as senior counterinsurgency advisor to General David Petraeus and as chief counterterrorism strategist at the U.S. State Department, working in the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia, including several operational activities in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Agencies.
