MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - A former national security advisor spoke Tuesday at Kansas State as part of the university’s Landon Lecture series.

Thomas Donilon took the stage in front of a large crowd at McCain Auditorium, answering questions from the audience on current and recent issues.

Donilon was intricately involved with the Obama administration's counter-terrorism strategy, including the operation that killed Osama bin Laden.

"I think it’s a very important milestone for the United States," said Donilon. "It’s the longest period of continuous was in the history of our country, through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Multiple deployments, as you know, for a number of our troops and really a great sacrifice for both them and for their families. We now have the ability at the end of this year to bring most of our troops home."

Donilon resigned as national security advisor in June 2013.
