In What Way Is Iran a Reliable Negotiating Partner?

| Posted in In The News

I was one of the Air Force’s B-1 pilot representatives for the verification of the START treaties with the former Soviet Union during my 14 years in the military. In those years I learned much about implementing a credible national-security policy.
