DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - One of former President George W. Bush’s top advisers on handling trouble spots around the world is speaking at Duke University about his view of America’s strengths and weaknesses.

Stephen Hadley visits the Durham university on Tuesday. Hadley served as Bush’s national security adviser from 2005 to 2009, during some of the worst periods of the Iraq war.

As the ex-president’s principal adviser on foreign policy within the White House, Hadley directed the National Security Council staff. During Bush’s first term in office, Hadley was deputy national security adviser under Condoleezza Rice. He was also Dick Cheney’s assistant during the future vice president’s stint as U.S. defense secretary from 1989 to 1993.

Hadley’s current jobs include starting a consulting firm with Rice and former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
