Hatchett to speak at Schreiner on war on terror
As part of the Cross-Cultural Forum sponsored by the Schreiner University Center for Innovative Learning, Dr. Ron Hatchett will speak on “The War on Terror Nine Years On: A Progress Report” at 7 p.m., Monday, March 1, in the ballroom of the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center.

Hatchett is a visiting professor and director of Global Studies at the University. He is an expert in foreign policy, European Studies and Middle Eastern Affairs, and a frequent commentator on local and national television and radio news programs. He has taught at several universities, including Texas A&M and the United States Air Force Academy, and spent 20 years as a U.S. Air Force officer dealing with intelligence and politico-military affairs. According to Hatchett, his presentation will summarize where we stand in the war on terror—what we have accomplished, challenges that remain, and the strategy we have for winning the struggle.

“Nine years after the terrorist attack on America we have made some headway in reducing the threat to our country but a hard core of those who would do us harm still exists,” Hatchett said. “We recently launched a new offensive aimed at destroying these diehards, committing more troops, new weapons and using a new strategy. Will this be enough?”
