Council for a Livable World Announces Endorsement of Sen. Brian Schatz
“For more than fifty years, the Council has been working to reduce the threat of nuclear weapons and nuclear terrorism while supporting a strong national security policy keeping America safe,” said Ira Lechner, chairman of Council for a Livable World. “Senator Schatz has proven the same commitment and we look forward to great things from him during his tenure. As Lieutenant Governor, he proved his commitment to our military families with his service on the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce’s Military Affairs Council.”
Council chairman, Ira Lechner, joins Robin Young of Here & Now WBUR-Boston to discuss nuclear weapons.
“Rep. Braley has spent his career in the House working to assist Iowa and America’s servicemen and women,” said Ira Lechner, chairman of Council for a Livable World’s Board of Director. “He has an unwavering commitment to America’s men and women in uniform and a proactive approach to international relations that enhances national security.”
"This all-star team is in the right place at the right time, because U.S. national security strategy is at a critical crossroads. With one war over, another one winding down and a budget crisis forcing the Pentagon to reshape itself, the time is ripe to bring our defense policy in line with fiscal and strategic realities," write Lt. General Robert Gard & Terry Lierman for Politico.
Council for a Livable World hosted former hostages and diplomats, Ambassador Bruce Laingen (Chief of Mission, Tehran 1979) and Ambassador John Limbert (political officer, Tehran 1979 & Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iran 2009-2010.)
