We are very honored to have Mark
Bruzonsky speak to us in this Dynamics of Terorism course via skype
from Washington DC. Before
I say a few words about Mark, let me thank Karmel Crane for taking the
time to work this connection out technically. With us also
today is Nancy Clark from the Faculty Development office at Saint
Mary's College who is interested in this link.
Now Mark is quite gracious to take some of his invaluable time to talk
to us about his experience in the Middle East and about his reflections
on terrorism. If there is anybody who is so knowledgeable about and so
experienced in the Middle East, it is certainly Mark. Mark has been
involved in the Middle East for quite many years. He knows and has come
to deal with most of the key players in the region for many years. Mark
is very candid, very devoted and a person of superb intellect and
reasoning. It is indeed my pleasure and my honor to present to you my
long-time friend, Mark Bruzonsky.
Thank you so much Mark for being with us. It'll be great if you would
tell us something about yourself and about your involvement in the
Middle East. I know you will speak for twenty minutes or so and then
students will ask questions or make comments. The floor is all yours.
