Speech to NATO Reserve Officers At the Interallied Confederation of Allied Officers Mid-Winter Meeting 1 February 2024 NATO HQ, Brussels

Ladies and Gentlemen, officers.

It’s an honor to be invited to speak here today in front of the men and women who understand what collective defense means and the importance of the alliance that has maintained the peace in Europe for 75 years. This is especially true in 2024 when many have doubts about the future of the alliance and at a time when Europe faces a greater threat to its security since the darkest days of the Cold War. Even then, when I was at Radio Free Europe in Munich Germany and when massive NATO exercises were just part of living in Europe, we did not have an ongoing massive invasion and war on the continent. Nor did we hear threats to invade, bomb and otherwise attack Europe.
