Eisenhower panel to discuss wars in Middle East

Members of the Eisenhower Series College Program will provide a panel discussion on “U.S. National Security Challenges and the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars” Tuesday, March 16, at the University of South Carolina.

The Eisenhower Program is an academic outreach of the U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks in Pennsylvania. Capt. William Davis, director of national security studies at the college, will lead the panel discussion with colonels, at 7 p.m. in Gambrell Hall auditorium. The event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served afterwards.

The program representatives will address several political science classes and participate in a discussion about the U.S. military’s “Don’t ask/Don’t tell” policy with invited students and faculty on March 17. President Barack Obama recently announced plans to eliminate the controversial policy, which has been in effect since 1993.

The Eisenhower Program’s visit to Carolina is sponsored by the department of political science and the College of Arts and Sciences.
