MPBN to Air UMaine Talk by Former U.S. Ambassador to Syria

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network will air a talk given by Robert Ford, former U.S. Ambassador to Syria at 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25 as part of its “Speaking in Maine” public affairs lecture series. Ford spoke at the University of Maine earlier this week, hours before airstrikes were initiated in Syria against ISIS. During his free talk, “Syria and Washington Politics — Hard to Agree,” Ford spoke about how domestic politics and U.S. strategy intersect in Syria. The talk can be heard online or on MPBN radio stations.
