Robert W. Jordan served as U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia during the crucial years after 9/11 from 2001 to 2003. During his service, Jordan worked closely with Crown Prince Abdullah and other Saudi leaders on sensitive issues of terrorism and human rights, while trying to maintain a positive relationship to ensure their cooperation with the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Simultaneously, he worked with top officials in Washington, including President Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and Condoleezza Rice. 
Ambassador Jordan will discuss these relationships as well as provide a candid and thoughtful assessment of the sometimes-distressing dysfunction in the conduct of American foreign policy, warfare, and intelligence gathering. He will also offer important insights into the political, economic, and social changes occurring in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.
