Dan Shapiro, Former U.S. Ambassador To Israel, Joins Biden's Iran Team
… Dennis Ross, a former senior adviser to the Clinton and Obama administrations and current adviser to the United Against Nuclear Iran advocacy organization, called Shapiro's appointment "a very smart move. It also shows that the administration is very serious about coordinating with the Israelis. That, too, sends an interesting signal." Foundation for Defense of Democracies CEO Mark Dubowitz called it a "smart choice," saying Shapiro is "clear-eyed about the threat from Iran and widely respected in Israel and Washington."
