Obama foreign policy team in Cincinnati
From the Obama campaign:
Members of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s foreign policy team, including Dr. Susan Rice, former Navy Sec. Richard Danzig, former Air Force Gen. Scott Gration and Dennis McDonough, will hold a series of town halls meetings Monday and Tuesday where they will discuss Obama's plan to restore American leadership on the world stage and decrease the risk of terrorism by attacking global poverty, upholding the rule of law and rebuilding international cooperation.
A frequent contributor to MSNBC, Rice was the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs for Bill Clinton. Danzig also served in the Clinton administration. He is the Sam Nunn Prize Fellow in International Security at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He is also a consultant to the Department of Defense on terrorism, with a focus on bioterrorism. Danzig served as Secretary of the Navy from 1998 to 2001 and Under Secretary of the Navy from 1993 to 1997.
Gration commanded Task Force West during Operation Iraqi Freedom and flew 274 missions over Iraq during the Persian Gulf War. He was raised in the Congo as the son of missionary parents and speaks Swahili as a first language. Gration accompanied Obama on a tour of Africa last year. McDonough was a foreign policy adviser to former U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle.
