After 9-11 and the Iraq War: Oil Security in the Middle East

The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Two years after the 9/11 attacks, the war in Iraq is now over and the security situation is still in flux. Ensuring oil security in the Middle East will be paramount to this and future administrations. Terrorists and terror-sponsoring states may increase attacks on oil infrastructure. Disruptions of oil may lead to an economic recession of markets. With history as our guide, a threat to oil security, is a threat to continued American prosperity. What should the United States government and the oil companies do?

Please join us as our distinguished panel explores this critical national and economic security issue.
