Former U.S. Ambassador and Presidential Envoy to Iraq, The Honorable L. Paul Bremer III, at the Diplomatic Club, DACOR, in Washington, D.C., on May 18, 2017.

Ambassador Bremer spoke about America's Indispensable Leadership Role in the World at a program sponsored by the FBA International Law Section, on May 18, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

Ambassador Bremer cited former U.S. Secretary of State, Henry A. Kissinger, for the proposition that America is the only country founded on an idea, on a rules-based liberal democratic order.

He cited the historical antecedents of leadership in the world, including that of the British Empire, from which the USA. took the mantle of leadership.

He asked, who, if not the USA, would assume the leadership role in and for the world.

His remarks were well received, with one long-time FBA leader writing that we should invite Ambassador Bremer to share his insights regularly, noting that she would come again and again!
