Fishbowl Five with the Washington Ideas Forum’s Steve Clemons and Margaret Carlson

Screen-Shot-2014-09-17-at-13.48.22Wednesday marks the start of The Atlantic’s sixth annual Washington Ideas Forum - in partnership with The Aspen Institute – an impressive gathering of some of the nation’s top minds on topics of national and international importance.

This year’s lineup includes Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Aspen Institute president and CEO Walter Isaacson on his forthcoming book The Innovators; co-founder and CEO of Vice Shane Smith; Revolution founder and partner Steve Case; United States Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith; Cornell University president David Skorton; Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson; Houston mayor Annise Parker; and more than five dozen others.

The two day event takes place Wednesday, October 29 and Thursday the 30 at the Harman Center for the Arts. In advance of the Forum, The Atlantic‘s Washington editor-at-large Steve Clemons and the Washington Ideas Forum (WIF) editorial director and Bloomberg View columnist Margaret Carlson completed a “Fishbowl Five” – or six – to preview what’s in store come later this week.

 

FishbowlDC: How will this year’s Forum differ than that of year’s past?

Clemons & Carlson: “More attendees. A lot more. New theater. Deeper dives and brilliant innovators outside DC showing paralyzed players inside DC what is possible. NASCAR and the New Orleans Saints. Popcorn.”

 

FishbowlDC: What makes WIF unique compared to similar conversations had inside and outside the Beltway?

Clemons & Carlson: ”Not all of the usual suspects. In our scrum we will hear how a guy selling glistening vegetables creates entire new neighborhoods (Whole Foods CEO Walter Robb) next to genomic sequencers (Craig Venter) and brain experts who are genuinely sculpting what it will mean to be human in the future. We are convening dramatic innovators in science, media, health and education from outside Washington to have a conversation with those inside DC. And very few get Susan Rice, John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, Anthony Fauci, Ernest Moniz and others from deep in a presidential administration to bat in the same ball game.” Read more

Supreme Court Rejects James Risen Appeal to Testify

Last week we wrote about a conversation with WaPo columnist David Ignatius and outed former CIA officer Valerie Plame with Atlantic Washington Editor-at-Large Steve Clemons on US and international intelligence.

During the conversation, Ignatius was asked about James Risen, the NYTimes reporter who appealed to the Supreme Court to not have to identify a confidential source. Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in Richmond, Va. rejected his appeal.

“On the specific question of Jim Risen, absolutely, he should not be compelled to reveal his sources,” offered Ignatius.

The issue dates back to a May 2011 subpoena received by Risen to identify a source for his 2006 book State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration.

David Ignatius and Valerie Plame In Convo with The Atlantic

authorspanelLast night at the Watergate, WaPo columnist David Ignatius, who has covered the Middle East and the CIA for 25+ years, and outed former CIA officer Valerie Plame joined The Atlantic Washington Editor-at-Large Steve Clemons to discuss US and international intelligence. The conversation took place just hours before, and covered, NBC’s Brian Williams’ sit down with former NSA contractor Edward Snowden as well as last weekend’s mistakenly outing by the White House of Afghanistan’s CIA station chief. After the conversation, Ignatius and Plame signed copies of their books, including Ignatius’ newest, The Director, due out publicly next week.

For those who missed the conversation (like us, womp womp) The Atlantic posted it online and Hollywood on the Potomac’s Janet Donovan had a one-on-one with Plame. Check ‘em out, after the jump. Read more
