Held shortly after the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, "Strategic Surprise" sees keynote speakers evaluating the military successes and failures encountered while handling the Twin Towers tragedy. Distinguished lecturers include General Michael Hayden ? former director of both the CIA and NSA ? and Ambassador Henry Crumpton, a former CIA agent and counterterrorism coordinator at the U.S. Department of State. Both speakers will discuss wartime strategies and how the evolution of espionage will affect American citizens and the plots of Hollywood blockbusters. Attendees can also attend special events, such as a screening of The Day The Towers Fell at the Stagecoach Theater and several Q&A panels that address historical wartime topics, including Pearl Harbor, the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, and the Battle of Hogwarts.
