Gordon Adams to be Featured on Radio Roundtable Discussion July 7, 2009

Posted by Stephen Abott in News.

On Sunday July 12th at 6pm, Dr. Gordon Adams will be featured in the rountable portion of the WAMU-FM 88.5 (in the DC area) program “Diplomacy Under Fire: Out of the Embassys, Into the Streets.”

As described on the program’s website:

“The cocktail parties and communiqués of traditional diplomacy are giving way to counterinsurgency and crisis management missions in places like Iraq and Colombia. American diplomats are now required to serve in both embassies and embeds. But the Foreign Service is short on folks with the language and technical skills to fill these modern posts. Add to that a bureaucratic State Department short on funds and slow to adapt and you end up with the 82nd Airborne as the face of American foreign policy to the world.”
