HBO History Makers: Condoleezza Rice

Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state and author of the new book, Condoleezza Rice:  A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me, stopped by CFR’s New York headquarters today to participate in our HBO History Makers Series.  In a conversation moderated by Katie Couric of the CBS Evening News, she reflected on her time in the George W. Bush Administration and on the issues she grappled with after 9/11, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  She also discussed the damaging effects of WikiLeaks and the geopolitical challenges of Iran and North Korea.
