On September 14th, a series of drones and missiles were used in an unprecedented attack on two of Saudi Arabia's primary oil facilities, sparking international concern about global oil supply stability and the efficacy of these types of drone attacks on critical infrastructure. 

In this session, Bernard Hudson, the former Chief of Counterterrorism for the CIA, will discuss the Aramco attacks and what it means for the standoff between Saudi Arabia and Iran in the Gulf. He will talk about the implications for both powers, regional security, and how the emerging threat from drones has finally started to take shape.
