Top Military, Intelligence Officials Join NIAC in Warning Against Iran War in Full-Page Washington Post Ad

NIAC No War Ad in Washington PostIn a full page Washington Post ad on Monday, top former military and intelligence officials called on President Obama to stand firm against a war of choice with Iran.  The President will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu today.  In the ad, the officials warn that U.S. servicemen and women deserve that peaceful, diplomatic options be exhausted before being sent into harm’s way.  They caution that not every challenge has a military solution and military action at this stage would be unnecessary and dangerous for both the U.S. and Israel.

The ad, sponsored by the National Iranian American Council, also features quotes from top current and former U.S. military leadership warning against war with Iran and supporting diplomacy.  The ad can be viewed here.
