ISIS' Hunt for WMDs:

Navigating the Nuclear Underworld with C.J. Chivers 

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016
3:30 - 5:00 PM
Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)
1616 Rhode Island Ave NW
Washington, DC 20036

The Project on Nuclear Issues (PONI) is pleased to invite you to a discussion with C.J. Chivers on nuclear smuggling in the Middle East. Chivers, a former marine and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigator with the New York Times, has reported from the front lines of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and more, analyzing conflicts and the weapons that fuel them. One of Chivers' recent features, "The Doomsday Scam," revealed how ISIS and other terrorist groups have pursued a fictional weapon-making substance known as red mercury. Chivers, who has been called "the greatest war reporter in a generation," will share his unique insight about the possibilitie of terrorist groups obtaining nuclear materials, where they could be bought, and how the international community should respond if a terrorist group were to acquire nuclear material, or some other weapon of mass destruction. The discussion will be moderated by Rebecca Hersman, Director, Project on Nuclear Issues, and Senior Adviser, International Security Program, CSIS.
