The event featured a candid discussion with Hard Choices report authors LTG David W. Barno, USA (Ret.)Dr. Nora Bensahel and Travis Sharp along with leading defense and budget experts Gordon Adams, Professor of international relations at American University's School of International Service and Distinguished Fellow at the Stimson Center, andTom Donnelly, Resident Fellow and Director of the Center for Defense Studies at the American Enterprise Institute.
