Col. Lawrence Wilkerson on the Coming War with Iran

Apr 12, 2018

As chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson helped lead America to war with Iraq under false pretenses. He’s worried history may be repeating itself, and that we’re on the road to an unjustified war with Iran.

As chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson helped prepare a now infamous presentation to the United Nations calling for war against Iraq. Wilkerson’s afraid history may be repeating itself. Specifically, he’s concerned that old grudges, heightened tensions, and geopolitical chess could lead to multinational conflict in the Middle East. Wilkerson is in Utah this week, and he joins us Thursday to discuss how war with Iran would echo the disastrous conflict in Iraq.

Lawrence Wilkerson, a retired Army colonel, teaches at the College of William & Mary. He served as chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002 to 2005.

On Thursday, April 12, at 12:30, Wilkerson will present a lecture entitled "The Coming War with Iran" at the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics. That event is sponsored by the Semnani Family Foundation and will be held in Room 110 in Building 73 on the University campus, just north of the S. J. Quinney College of Law. DETAILS
