COLLOQUY: HUSH-HUSH SCHOLARSHIPS
A federal program that gives university scholarships to
intelligence analysts in training is seen by some observers as a
long-overdue effort to remedy the federal government's
collective ignorance about foreign lands. Other scholars,
however, view the program as a profound threat to academic
integrity. Join a live, online discussion with one of the
project's main proponents on Wednesday at 1 p.m., U.S. Eastern
time. Advance questions and comments may be posted now.
