This just in from our friends in the foreign policy and intelligence business:

Henley-Putnam University, in partnership with the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, announced it will sponsor the 2010 SpyCruise voyage, a national security educational and lecture seminar series. Henley-Putnam President Dr. Michael Corcoran will join retired experts from the CIA, FBI, DOD, RCMP, KGB, and renowned intelligence authors and historians as a featured speaker during the excursion.

SpyCruise was launched as an entertaining, unique opportunity for a private group to attend exclusive lectures on intelligence, counterintelligence, counterterrorism and national security issues. Each cruise has a different ship, a different destination and a different agenda.

Lectures and workshops are held on at-sea days during the cruise. The remainder of the time, participants can enjoy a vacation complete with excursions, destinations and all the amenities and activities offered by the ship.

This year’s SpyCruise topic is “Current & Future Threats: Policies, Problems, and Prescriptions.” Additional keynote speakers include: Porter Goss, former Director of the CIA; Gen. Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA and NSA; Peter Brookes, Heritage Foundation Fellow, former CIA Operations Officer and Townhall Magazine contributing editor; Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, U.S. Army, retired; Michael Braun, retired DEA Operations Chief; Managing Partner, Spectre Group International; and Clare Lopez, retired CIA Operations Officer.

The 2010 voyage sets sail November 13-20, with a cruise to the Caribbean aboard the Holland American MS Eurodam. Destinations include Ft. Lauderdale, Turks & Caicos, San Juan, St. Thomas, and the Bahamas. Those interested in participating can make reservations by calling Diamond Fun Travel at 1.888.670.0008.
