America has no shortage. Belligerent groups infest the country. United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) is one of many. Its leaders represent extremist neocon interests. By any definition they're rogues.
Mark Wallace serves as CEO. He held several Bush administration positions, including UN envoy.
Kristen Silverberg is president. She was Bush's EU ambassador.
Dennis Ross was Middle East envoy in both Clinton and Bush administrations. He's now "counselor" for the pro-Israeli Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP).
James Woolsey is former CIA director.
Gary Samore served in Clinton and Bush's National Security Council.
Meir Dagan was Ariel Sharon's Mossad head.
August Hanning is former German Federal Interior Ministry state secretary.
Francis Townsend was Bush's assistant for Homeland Security.
Richard Dearlove is former British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) head.
Twenty other advisory board members have similar extremist credentials.
UANI calls itself an advocacy group against Iranian "ambition(s) to obtain nuclear weapons." Wallace, Woolsey, Ross, and the late Richard Holbrooke founded the group in 2008.
It's partnered with Britain's Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD). "The UANI-ISD Initiative".is an unprecedented transatlantic partnership dedicated to combatting the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran."
