Dick Nixon meets the troops
Are you bored and a history buff?
Well, today was made to liven up your life in Yorba Linda at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, which is holding a party this afternoon entitled, "Nixon and the Role of Intelligence in the 1973 Arab-Israeli War."
[Insert joke here, if you wish.]
The Central Intelligence Agency's Historical Collections Division is sponsoring the symposium to examine 200 newly declassified intelligence documents on the war.
Speakers include: Charles E. Allen, a former Under Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security; William Quandt, a National Security Council staffer for Nixon and President Jimmy Carter; Andy Liepman, a former Deputy Director of the National Counterterrorism Center; Richard Kovar, a former chief of the CIA's Middle East Task Force; and Emile A. Nakhleh, a former senior intelligence officer.
The event--from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.--is free and open to the public.
Tomorrow, the Nixon Foundation hosts comedian/clown Larry Elder.
