Ali comments widely used on domestic and international national security issues

August 10, 2022

Ford School professor of practice Javed Ali tapped his knowledge as a former senior director for counterterrorism at the National Security Council for widespread commentary about the U.S. killing of Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri and also on the rising tensions around Taiwan in the wake of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s visit. He also commented on the potential threat to national security posed by classified documents that may have been kept at former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. When New York Governor Kathy Hochul appropriated $10 million to deter domestic terrorism, Ali said it was a step in the right direction that should be followed by other states.
