In January 2013, the McCain Institute for International Leadership launched its Debate and Decision Series with an inaugural event entitled “Should the United States Save Syria?” A distinguished group of debaters tackled the topic during a live debate moderated by CNN’s Elise Labott at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington.
Two years later, the McCain Institute will revisit this issue - examining the current situation in Syria, the rise of ISIS and the expansion of the conflict into Iraq.
We look forward to a lively debate, as leading U.S. and Syria experts tackle the question: “Syria: Should the United States Do More?” the latest in our Debate and Decision Series events at the McCain Institute.
