I am grateful to Leon Panetta and the Panetta Institute for bringing us together to discuss these important issues, and I hope you will take time to watch online at the Panetta Institute’s website at: http://www.panettainstitute.org/programs/lecture-series/webcast-video-archive/2013-gridlock-or-action/middle-east-turmoil-chaos-or-reform/.
