Two of the country's top collegiate debate programs - Georgetown University and the University of Michigan - squared off on one of the most contested foreign policy issues of our day. The teams debated whether or not the United States should use military force against Iran if nuclear diplomacy fails. Dr. Colin Kahl, senior fellow and director of the Middle East Security Program at CNAS, provided context to the Iran policy debate here in Washington and moderated Q&A with the debate teams. CNAS hosted this event to support our mission to elevate and shape the debate on this key national security issue and promote the next generation of national security leaders.
