The Foundation for Defense of Democracies hosted its by-invitation-only annual policy summit, Washington Forum, on April 13, 2016 at The Mayflower Hotel. FDD’s Washington Forum is open exclusively to government officials, congressional staff, members of the armed forces, foreign policy professionals, members of the diplomatic corps, the intelligence community, and credentialed press. The theme for this year’s Washington Forum was “National Security in the next Administration: Can America Change Course?” The discussions aimed to address, among other questions: Can the next president counter Iran’s nuclear, military, and regional aggression? Should dictators be trusted as negotiating partners? Who is fighting to keep America safe from cyber and economic warfare? What will it take to defeat the Islamic State? How can America rebuild strength and credibility?
