Former Counterterrorism Adviser Visits FSU

November 28th, 2007 by flanews

A top former U.S. counterterrorism official gave a speech at Florida State University. Richard Clarke served on the National Security Council under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush until 2003. He wrote a book in 2004, Against All Enemies: Inside Americas War on Terror. Since leaving the government, Clarke has been highly critical of the Bush administration. Clarke says the invasion of Iraq opened the door to Iran as a major threat to stability in the Middle East. Clarke says bombing Iran is not the answer.

I spent a lot of time negotiating with the Soviet Union when they were our enemy,” Clark said. “So I have the prejudice that we ought to talk to our enemies. And I think we ought to talk to Iran. You never know what could happen when you sit across the table from someone and negotiate.

Clarke currently is an adjunct lecturer in public policy at Harvard Universitys John F. Kennedy School of Government.
