CSPC and George Washington University's Homeland Security Policy Institute Host Discussion with Michael Allen, Author of "Blinking Red: Crisis & Compromise in American Intelligence After 9/11"

On Wednesday, October 23, 2013 the Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress and George Washington University's Homeland Policy Institute hosted a discussion with Michael Allen, the author of the new book "Blinking Red: Crisis and Compromise in American Intelligence After 9/11." CSPC Senior Fellow Frank Cilluffo interviewed Allen, who brings a unique perspective to intelligence issues, having served in both Congress and the Administration as Majority Staff Director of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Counter-Proliferation Strategy on the White House's National Security Council (NSC).

"Blinking Red" traces the legislative history of the momentous reforms to the national security and intelligence structures in the United States that were built out from the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
