Join us next Wednesday, June 24, at 12 noon, when Executive Director of the Center for a Secure, Free Society, Joseph M. Humire, will talk about “Iran’s Presence—South of our Border!”.
Mr. Humire will discuss Iran’s plans to replicate the model it has used in the Middle East to use its proxy Hezbollah and other terrorist organization it supports to create pincer-like grasp surrounding Israel, in the Western hemisphere. Using its rapidly expanding ties with President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, Iran plans to replicate its land bridge that it so successfully built in the Middle East in the Western hemisphere, in order to enable the Iranians to threaten the United States, in ways that they have not been able to, from the Middle East.
Joseph M. Humire currently serves as the executive director of the next generation, national security think tank—Center for a Secure Free Society (SFS)—based in Washington D.C. and is a distinguished senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute and the Middle East Forum. Prior to SFS, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps with a combat tour in Iraq and a multinational training exercise UNITAS in Latin America and the Caribbean. After leaving the military, he graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Economics and Global Affairs. Mr. Humire began building SFS’s global network of more than 100 security scholars in almost 30 countries worldwide as the Director of Institute Relations at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation.
