Retired Ambassador Deborah McCarthy, the 2018 DACOR Visiting Professor of Diplomacy for the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC), has expanded her podcast series “The General and the Ambassador: A Conversation.” McCarthy’s podcast promotes interagency cooperation and is produced by the American Academy of Diplomacy.
The latest episode focuses on U.S. military and diplomatic partnership in Qatar and features General David Goldfein and Ambassador Susan Ziadeh. General David Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force, and Ambassador Susan Ziadeh, currently Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, discuss their partnership in Qatar and the importance of joint U.S. military and diplomatic action in the field.
The DACOR Visiting Professor of Diplomacy Program is conducted in partnership with the Diplomatic and Consular Officers, Retired, Inc. (DACOR) organization located in Washington D.C., and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College Foundation. Several times a year retired senior officials, usually Ambassadors with extensive diplomatic experience, come to Fort Leavenworth to interact with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College students and faculty to provide a Department of State and Chief of Mission perspective to the curriculum. During their visit they also interact with area universities and civic organizations discussing policy, regional, and political expertise, as well as speaking about careers in the Foreign Service.
