A Trump-Light, Ukraine-Heavy Aspen Security Forum

From a story on politico.com by Nahal Toosi and Alexander Ward headlined “A Trump-light, Ukraine-heavy Aspen Security Forum”:

This year’s gathering of foreign policy elites in the Rocky Mountains drew big names, such as Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

But who wasn’t there — and what wasn’t said — was perhaps as significant as the featured speakers and panels at the annual Aspen Security Forum.

There were no big reveals — and no serious solutions are out there for the world’s biggest challenges. Ukraine and China were on everyone’s minds, but the Middle East wasn’t — highlighting how much U.S. national security priorities have changed from the days after Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorism was all anyone talked about.
