About The Event
The Stubbs society is delighted to welcome Joey Hood, the Principal Deputy Assistant US Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs as the first guest of our summer podcast series. With his past roles including Deputy Chief of Mission (In Iraq and Kuwait), Consul General and Principal Officer in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and Acting Director of the Office of Iranian Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, we hope our discussion with him provides an insightful and informative analysis of US policy in the Middle East, including the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, the US-Saudi relationship in the aftermath of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and American support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
