Not at the Combined Arms Center Inter-Agency Symposium. During the Q&A of the Stability Operations Panel:
One audience member posed a general question for the panel "what is the feasibility of reestablishing US Information Agency (USIA)?"
Answer was "We absolutely must"
A follow on question by another Audience Member was "How do we make that happen?"
The Answer was "Legislation makes that happen"
Anyone else find it fun to read questions about recreating USIA in Defense Department forums? They happen at State (I asked Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy Chairman Bill Hybl about it — I couldn’t help myself), but it is so obvious at Defense and seemingly there’s more enthusiasm for it there as well.
