More About The U.S and the Middle East – the New Balance of Power and the Way Forward

On July 25, 2018, The Middle East Institute, the preeminent Washington DC policy center on the Middle East, will bring Nicholas Rasmussen, former Director of the U.S. National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) to the Limelight Hotel in Ketchum for an in-depth conversation.

Rasmussen held senior positions at NCTC and the White House in both Republican and Democratic administrations during a 27-year career in government. He will share insights on the state of our national security, counter-terrorism efforts, and Middle East trouble spots including Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.
The following day, July 26, experts from The Middle East Institute will join Rasmussen for conversations on the U.S. and its changing relationships with key regional powers including Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey as well as a discussion on how terrorist networks operate through banks and financial institutions throughout this volatile region.
This is the third in a series of summer forums that The Middle East Institute has conducted in collaboration with the Sun Valley Global Affairs Forum to bring top policy insiders to the Sun Valley area. Previous years have featured keynote speakers such as Richard A. Clarke, Ambassador Robert Ford and Vice-Admiral Robert Harward
