The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum and the Central Intelligence Agency will host a special symposium on President Carter and the role of intelligence in the Camp David Accords. President Jimmy Carter will give the keynote address on the role of intelligence in preparing for the 1978 meeting between Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin at Camp David. In addition, the CIA will release to the public more than 250 previously classified documents totaling about 1,400 pages on the role intelligence played in supporting the Carter administration’s efforts to help negotiate a comprehensive settlement to the Arab-Israeli dispute.

Other participants in the symposium include William Quandt (former staff member of the National Security Council), Matthew Penney (CIA Historian), Jerold Post (founding director of the CIA's Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior) Martha Neff Kessler (former CIA analyst on the Middle east and South Asia) and Adam Howard (general editor, Foreign Relations of the United States Series, Department of State). CNN's Jonathan Mann will moderate the symposium.
