Life After Politics: Joe Lieberman Joins JINSA

The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) is proud to announce that former Senator Joseph Lieberman and five recently retired senior military officers have joined JINSA’s Board of Advisers.

Senator Lieberman embodied JINSA’s mission for almost three decades in the Senate. As a staunch supporter of both U.S.-Israel cooperation and a strong American military, he was honored by JINSA with its Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson Distinguished Service Award in 1997. After 9/11, Senator Lieberman was instrumental in reorganizing the intelligence community and establishing the Department of Homeland Security. America is a safer place because of his bipartisan work and JINSA is honored to have him as an adviser.

JINSA also added five recently retired senior military officers to the Board of Advisers  General Hal M. Hornburg , former Commander, Air Combat Command, Lieutenant General Tad J. Oelstrom , former Superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy, Lieutenant General Guy Swan , former commander of United States Army North (Fifth Army), Lieutenant General George J. Trautman , former Deputy Commandant for Aviation, and Lieutenant General Stephen G. Wood , former Deputy Commander, United Nations Command

The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian educational organization established in 1976 to educate the public on national and international security issues, including the importance of an effective U.S. defense capability and the key role of strategic allies, including Israel, to promote democratic values in the Middle East.

One Response to “Life After Politics: Joe Lieberman Joins JINSA”

  1. With Lieberman gone will only Republicans in the Senate be really pro-Israel?

    Senator Schumer is meeting with Chuck Hagel this week in private. Schumer should consider that Hagel does not believe that a military option is an option even if negotiations fail.

    He has recently changed his previous stated views on this issue to accept "all options are on the table", in order to advance his career. It means he now believes that it is expedient to use the threat as.
    a public lever in negotiations, but if negotiations fail, he would advise in private, that the US should allow a nuclear armed Iran.
    Many of those who are in favor of confirmation such as Nicholas Kristof, writing in the New York Times, have said the same thing. Iran certainly understands this, and is rooting for him.

    A nuclear Iran has sworn to eliminate Israel and every mosque in Iran has a poster "Death To Israel."

    After Iran drops an atomic bomb over Tel Aviv, the issue of whether Hagel is anti-Israel or pro-Israel becomes mute.

    Iran has a high tolerance for the deaths of huge numbers of people. The war between Iran and Iraq ostensibly over a territorial dispute concerning 0.1% of Iran's land mass had a million casualties.
    Iran has spread it's terror all over the globe and has murdered more than a thousand Americans.
    It's ideology is identical to Al Quaeda, amd certainly has America, the Great Satan in it's cross hairs.

    A Hagel confirmation kills any chance of Iran agreeing to stop it's nuclear weapons program through negotiations. why would they take the tremendous political risk of telling their people that years of sanctions privations was for nothing when they know their is no risk of an American military action?

    I believe President Obama's primary motivation in nominating Hagel is that he thinks he would help to deeply cut the Pentagon budget, and not to poke a finger in the eye of the pro-Israel constituency.
    But it is a very serious miscalculation of unintended consequences.
    Several Senators and Congresspeople have made exactly the same objections.
    The Senate should not confirm Hagel. Senators Gildebrand, Schumer. Lautenberg, Menendez, Boxer, Cardin and many more that take seriously the Iranian threat and have made promises to their constituents on this issue should vote no just for this reason.

    Senator Schumer should remember how the US government's policy against bombing Aushwitz are now eerily similar to this crucial moment.
