Prof. Lahoud Speaks at New America Foundation
May 29, 2012
On Tuesday, 29 May 2012, Dr. Nelly Lahoud, Associate Professor in the Department of Social Sciences and Senior Associate at the Combating Terrorism Center, was the featured speaker at a seminar sponsored by the New America Foundation entitled, “Osama bin Laden and al-Qai’da: Lessons from the Abbottabad Documents.” The presentation emphasized that the thin volume of the declassified documents makes it impossible to present conclusive findings as to the state of al-Qai’da today. The focus of Dr. Lahoud’s presentation was on al-Qai’da’s relationship with regional jihadi groups and its reported relationship with Iran and Pakistan. The presentation was televised by C-SPAN.
