CIA Secret War Files Discussion Set For This Afternoon at Richard Nixon Presidential Library

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.
