What keeps former acting Director of the CIA Mike Morell up at night?

Former Homeland Secretary Jeh Johnson has generously agreed to host and moderate a very important conversation with Michael Morell, former Acting Director of the CIA. Morell will discuss the most worrying dangers to national security and how current US policy does not align well to meet these perils. He will cover global conflict zones from China, North Korea, Russia, and Middle East with particular emphasis on the rising threats from the Pacific Rim area.

Capacity is extremely limited. Please RSVP today.

Michael Morell, the former CIA Acting Director and Deputy Director, has a great depth of experience in intelligence and foreign policy with over three decades in the CIA. He has received the Distinguished Intelligence Medal, the Agency’s highest honor, for his role in the successful operation to take down Osama bin Laden, and authored the New York Times best-seller The Great War Of Our Time.


Secretary Jeh Johnson has distinguished himself in both public service and private corporate law practice. He served in the Obama cabinet as Secretary of Homeland Security (2013-2017) with vast responsibilities for homeland security, immigration, natural disaster relief, and many other critical policy areas. Johnson served as General Counsel of the Department of Defense (2009-2012) and General Counsel of the Department of the Air Force under President Clinton (1998-2001). Currently, he is a partner with the law firm Paul Weiss, and an Honorary Advisory Board member at The Common Good.
