About the event

The Obama/Bush Foreign Policies: Why Can't America Change?

Date: 17th Jan 2011
Venue: Grand Hyatt Hotel

Pulizer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh will be in Doha on January 17 to give a special lecture on American foreign policy.

Organized by Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar's Center for International and Regional Studies, the distinguished lecture titled "The Obama/Bush Foreign Policies" poses the question -- why can't America change?

Hersh is a regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine on military and security matters.

His work first gained worldwide recognition in 1969 for exposing a massacre cover-up during the Vietnam War. His 2004 reports on the US military's mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison also gained much attention.

Hersh is the author of several best-selling books, including:

* The Prince of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House
* The Dark Side of Camelot
* Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib

Hersh's lecture begins at 6pm at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
