Former Iowa Congressman Talks Middle East At SAU

Posted: Updated:

A former Congressman is holding a lecture at Saint Ambrose University about the issues in the Middle East.

Jim Leach is giving a presentation at Iowa's first middle east academic institute. It's devoted to study and discuss the geography of the Middle East. 
     
Leach says the Middle East is just as important as any other region when it comes to American politics. 

"All local politics is influenced by foreign events," Leach said. "I mean we're part of a world where both commercially as well as politically that things that happen in one part, affects things in other parts."

Leach's lecture was at seven at the Christ the King Chapel on the St. Ambrose campus.
