START Director attends Baltimore Speakers Series featuring former CIA Director John Brennan

Last month, START Director William Braniff was invited to attend a private reception and dinner with former CIA Director, John Brennan, at the Maryland Club.

This event was hosted by the Baltimore Speakers Series, and was followed by a public lecture by Brennan at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

At the public event, Director Brennan spoke to a range of current national security issues, from the protests in Iran to the war in Ukraine to domestic violent extremism. 

"It's always insightful to hear how a life-long national security hand interprets and articulates what is happening in real-time,” Braniff said. "The speed at which people like Director Brennan can arrive at meaningful insights is always impressive.”
