DACOR: The Looming Nuclear Arms Race in the Middle East and How to Prevent It
Robert 'Bud' McFarlane has had a distinguished record of public service including ten years in the White House and State Department serving variously as Counselor to the Department of State, National Security Advisor to President Reagan and Military Advisor to Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft. In recent years he has focused on organizing investment into developing countries, brokering reconciliations between rival Sunni and Shia sects in Iraq, coaching the tribal leaders of Darfur, and leading the United States Energy Security Council, a bipartisan panel of former cabinet officers, senior retired military officers, and senior corporate executives devoted to forging a more coherent national energy policy. Currently he is focused, again with retired four-star military officers and distinguished American diplomats, on the prevention of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
