Nine of America's preeminent military analysts, columnists and defense correspondents arrived in Israel for a 3-day fact-finding mission. Sponsored by the American Jewish Committee's Project Interchange, a non-political non-governmental organization based in Washington, the trip will include Fox News analyst Lt. General (ret) Tom McInerney, Tony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic & International Studies, Rick Francona, Lt. Col (ret) an analyst for NBC, Max Boot, a journalist with the Council on Foreign Relations, Noah Shachtman, an editor with WIRED Magazine and several others with expertise in defense and strategic affairs. These senior analysts were invited to Israel to examine and discuss first-hand the complex events unfolding in the region. "They want to be on the ground to see for themselves - not only what's transpired in Gaza but to take a keen look at what comes next," said Sam Witkin, the Executive Director of Project Interchange. "Through briefings with senior Israeli officials, participants will enhance their understanding of Israel's military objectives and priorities. They'll address Israeli domestic and regional concerns as well by talking directly with Palestinian leaders, Israeli legislators, civilians, and leading voices from Israel's think-tanks and media," Witkin added.
