From the Dept. of Brilliant Ideas

Spencer Ackerman and Matthew Yglesias have an idea as to who should headline the CNAS June conference: Vo Nguyen Giap. I, for one, think this would be a brilliant idea. Our two most high-profile programs at CNAS are, arguably, our Asia-Pacific Security program and our projects examining America's current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. What a great way to combine the two! Vo could speak about COIN (albeit with the C and the O) and could provide insight on Asian security. Genius!
