This evening, I’ll be live-blogging the Intelligence Squared debate on whether or not it’s time to end the war on terror.
For the motion:
•Peter Bergen, New America Foundation
•Juliette Kayyem, formerly of the Department of Homeland Security under the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School
Against the motion:
•Richard Falkenrath, Department of Homeland Security under the Bush administration and now fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations
•Michael Hayden, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency
The debate begins at 6:45 and runs until 8:30. Slate, a new partner of Intelligence Squared, will webcast the debate.
For those not familiar with Intelligence Squared debates, based on the Oxford-style format, the audience votes before the debate begins on where they stand on the issue. At the debate’s conclusion, the audience votes again and the side that gains the largest percentage of gain wins.
Come back to Think Tanked at 6:45 and we’ll have our own discussion of the debate as it unfolds.
