Who Is Ashton Carter?
Profile: Ashton Carter
“Ashton B. Carter is a Ford Foundation Professor of Science and International Affairs at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and a former Assistant Secretary of Defense. The 1998 essay he co-wrote with Deutch and Zelikow was published in a book he wrote with William Perry entitled Preventive Defense: An American Security Strategy for the 21st Century.
Carter is also a member of the Board of Trustees for MITRE, where he was a trustee from 1988 to 1993. The MITRE Corp. is a major defense contracting organization based in Bedford, Massachusetts, which is headed by the former Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), Dr. James Rodney Schlesinger. MITRE’s crucial communication, command and control systems clearly failed on 9/11, something that deserves investigating. ”
