KENNEBUNK — “Turkey: Ally No More,” is the topic of Sept. 21 meeting of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO), Maine Chapter.
The speaker will be former CIA officer Clare Lopez, vice president for research and analysis at the Center for Security Policy, a conservative Washington think tank. Lopez has authored a book highly critical of Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as hostile toward the vital interests of the United States, NATO and other allies like Israel and the Kurds.
This is the latest in a series of discussions relating to the importance of intelligence in current public affairs. The AFIO meeting is open to the public, and will begin at 2 p.m. at the Program Center of the Brick Store Museum, 4 Dane St., Kennebunk. A question period will follow the presentation.
