Forum to focus on new global threats

Nuclear Jihad: New Threats in a New Century is the topic for a thought provoking address to be given by David E.

During Mr. Sanger’s 24-year career as a journalist, he has reported from abroad on issues surrounding foreign policy, globalization, nuclear proliferation, and Asian affairs and has written extensively on those issues in Japan and Southeast Asia.  He was one of the first to report on North Korea’s secret nuclear weapons programs and continues to cover proliferation issues from Washington.  Sanger is currently the White House Correspondent for the New York Times, is a regular panelist on the PBS news program, Washington Week in Review and has twice been a member of Times reporting teams that won the Pulitzer Prize.  He was also the 2004 co-recipient of the Weintal Prize for diplomatic reporting for his coverage of the Iraq and Korean crises.
