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.

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?
