As part of Tikvah’s advanced institute “Nuclear Strategy and the Crisis of World Order,” instructor and former under-secretary of defense, Eric S. Edelman sat down with fellow instructor and Beton Michael Kaneb Professor of National Security and Military Affairs at Harvard University, Stephen P. Rosen, to discuss Al-Kibar and Operation Orchard. Dr. Edelman reflected on how he learned of the Syrian reactor in spring of 2007 and what unfolded within the U.S government during the few months leading up to Israel’s September 2007 bombing and destruction of the site.
