The National Hellenic Society hosted a luncheon at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC. It was moderated by Mike Manatos, NHS Board member and President of Manatos & Manatos, and featured Ambassador and first Director of National Intelligence, the Honorable John Negroponte, and Ambassador and Executive Director of the US-Qatar Business Council, the Honoable Patrick Theros. The two spoke on present U.S. foreign policy from their vantage points, seasoned by life-long careers as U.S. diplomats. They discussed the challenges, risk, and opportunities facing the West within the context of America’s political transition. Especially given recent news developments, this discussion was very compelling and lively.
The NHS and the International Spy Museum are working together to tell the intelligence story from the vantage point of the ancient world and the role it played in preserving freedom and democracy. The Museum has broken ground on a new museum building space in L’Enfant Plaza in Washington, DC, to be completed in 2018. To honor one of the oldest stories of espionage and deception in history, the Museum is planning to reconstruct a full-scale Trojan Horse and install it in front of the Museum’s new building.
