    Professionals bring special credibility to their analysis and advice thanks to specialized training, expertise, and credentials. Professionals share ethical commitments grounded on integrity and respect for factual knowledge. However, in the national security administrative state, they must balance analytical independence with service to organizational superiors and principals who have preferences, policies, and viewpoints. This panel is composed of experienced legal, intelligence, and military professionals and scholars, and it will explore current challenges to this balancing act in our often anti-expert, post-fact, hyper-partisan moment.
