Senate Foreign Committee Relations to Hear from Non-Administration Witnesses on UNCLOS
Oct-3-07 03:23 pm
Former CNO Admiral Vern Clark
Following upon its hearing last week with Administration witnesses, the Senate Foreign Relation Committee will be holding a hearing tomorrow, Thursday, October 4, to hear from persons outside the Administration. The hearing will take place at 9:30AM EDT in Dirksen 419. The witness list includes:
Panel 1:Given the presence of vocal treaty opponent, Fram Gaffney, I suspect there will be more fireworks than at the previous hearing. Nonetheless, the overwhelming tenor of the hearing should be quite supportive of advice and consent.
