What has former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper learned from a lifetime of public service?

Director Clapper reflects on Russia, Iraq, and the Korean Peninsula

Before James Clapper served as President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, he held a fascinating array of positions in the intelligence community and played a first-hand role in many of the military actions that have defined the last fifty years of American foreign policy. 

In a wide-ranging interview with United Security host Ken Wainstein, Clapper talks through his childhood as the son of an early National Security Agency officer, his service in Vietnam, and his intelligence roles in the other tense conflicts of the Cold War and beyond.
