Henley-Putnam University is pleased to host the next installment of its webinar series.

In the webinar, Dr. Snair will discuss how history is filled with instances in which intelligence gathering was adequate, but people made very bad decisions using basic argumentative errors in analyzing the intelligence.

This webinar considers these basic argumentative (or rhetorical) errors with historical examples. It then discusses how to avoid these fallacies when writing one's own security-related analysis.

The Webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge. Register Now!
