Tony Jordan, retired CIA Senior Intelligence Service officer, will discuss what he sees as failures in U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East duringÂ Lunch with the League on Tuesday, a press release said.
JordanÂ has extensive experience as an operations manager in the Middle East and South Asia, a press release said.
The Tuesday, October 7, program will start at noonÂ in the Social Hall of the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church’s new location at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
“The understanding by policy makers of the difference between terrorism as a tactic of conflict and radical Islam as a religious ideology is essential to the execution of a successful strategy in the Middle East and throughout the world,” the press release said. “Jordan’s experience and insights are of special significance in light of current events in the Middle East.”
Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Oak Ridge, Lunch with the League is open to the public. There is no cost to attend and reservations are not needed. Box lunches will be available starting at 11:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis for $8, or you may bring your own. Coffee and tea are provided.
