event poster with image of John F KennedyAll are welcome to this History Speaker Series event: Bruce Riedel, Director of The Intelligence Project and Senior Fellow with the Center for Middle East Policy at The Brookings Institution, will present the principal findings from his new book, JFK’s Forgotten Crisis: Tibet, the CIA, and the Sino-Indian War. He will share the gripping story of the conflict that, unlike the Cuban missile crisis (which happened simultaneously with the Sino-Indian War), has escaped history’s attention, yet still resonates today. Drawing on newly declassified documents, Riedel details the decisions made by the president to stem the tide of an all-out war, and explains how his forgotten crisis is still influencing the world more than a half-century later.
