NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen (what a mouthful!) will be speaking today at 1:00 p.m. in Gaston Hall. The lecture, ‘’NATO—Delivering Real Security in an Age of Uncertainty,” will also feature former Secretary of State and Georgetown Professor Madeleine Albright. Attendance is open to current GU students, faculty, and staff and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. The doors will open at 12:00 p.m. but no bags, briefcases, or backpacks will be allowed inside.
We vaguely remember a failed filibuster and his mustache
Also speaking on campus Monday is former U.S. Ambassador to the UN John Bolton, who will give a lecture from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Mortara building. Bolton had some tough words for President Obama in a speech Saturday at CPAC, saying that the president “does not care about foreign policy” and “is not ready to be president.” His lecture, “The Current State of Foreign Affairs and Policy,” will be moderated by Republican strategist Bradley Blakeman. There will also be a Q&A session following the lecture. Students wishing to attend the event should RSVP.
