“I am thrilled that this new digital program will allow me to take a deeper dive into some of the important issues facing our country, from the winding down of the war in Afghanistan and the importance of caring for our veterans, to how the Arab Spring will impact U.S. navigation of conflicts in the Middle East,” she added.
