One of the many things we're missing this summer are the conversations and events at the Aspen Institute's Aspen Security Forum . Always a fascinating window into the nation's security issues and organizations, the Security Forum has been one of the most popular of the Institute's summer programs. So we were pleased to read today that the Aspen Security Forum is going online next week from August 4-6. Among the speakers and interviewers scheduled are current and past international officeholders and prestigious media persons including Condoleeza Rice, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Nicholas Kristof and Peter Baker of the New York Times and US Senator Mark Warner. All of the programs are free to the public. To listen in you must register on the Aspen Institute website.
