Rita Hauser, a long-time international lawyer with great experience in the Middle East, is a member of the Board of Trustees of RAND Corporation, was appointed by President Bush to the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, and co-chaired the Bush-Cheney re-election effort in New York.
She is also intimately aware of the workings of the United Nations — its limitations and successes. She is tougher than nails, no nonsense, and a brilliant and persuasive thinker and commentator.
Rita Hauser joins the TWN list of Ambassadorial picks who would be vastly better than John Bolton for the United Nations.
