Assessing our Adversaries

By Graham Allison, Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School

As the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks become a more distant memory, many Americans comfort themselves with the thought that 9/11 was a freak accident or a 100-year flood.

Misplaced `misunderestimation'

For Energy Security, Think Nuclear

Op-Ed, International Herald Tribune

By Graham Allison, Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School

Who is the No. 1 producer of energy in the world today? Russia. Who is the No. 1 exporter of energy in the world today? Again, Russia. Who is the No. 1 consumer of energy in the world today? The United States. So it is no accident, as the Russians say, that President Vladimir Putin chose "energy security" as the banner for the G-8 in St. Petersburg this week.

How Good is American Intelligence on Iran?

Magazine or Newspaper Article, YaleGlobal Online

By Graham Allison, Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School

For the first time since Iran walked away from negotiations with France, Germany and Great Britain in August 2005, there are rays of optimism in the crisis over the Islami Republic's nuclear program. Before breaking out the champagne to celebrate a diplomatic solution, it may be appropriate to pause for reflection on a troubling unknown: the potential scope of Iran's secret bomb program.

Senate Should Confirm Hayden

Op-Ed, Chicago Tribune

By Bob Graham, Former Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, 2005-2006 and Graham Allison, Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School

As a former Democratic senator who chaired the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and a former assistant secretary of defense in the Clinton administration, we strongly support the confirmation of Gen. Michael Hayden to be the director of the CIA. If confirmed, we believe he will be a great, potentially even legendary leader of an organization desperately in need of continuity of effective leadership.

 

Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe

Graham Allison, founding dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, a former top official at the Pentagon, and one of America’s leading scholars of nuclear strategy and national security, presents the evidence and argument that led him to two provocative conclusions: a nuclear terrorist attack on an American city is inevitable on our current course and speed, but preventable if we act now.
