The board of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, chaired by Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick, congratulates Elliott Abrams on his appointment to the National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Democracy, Human Rights, and International Organizations. Said Ambassador Kirkpatrick: “During his years as president, Elliott has enhanced the institutional strength and public influence of the Ethics and Public Policy Center in advancing the goal of a free and just society as informed by the Judeo-Christian moral tradition. We are grateful for his leadership, and confident that the National Security Council will benefit from his commitment and wisdom in seeking to secure human rights and democracy in the international arena.”
The board is pleased that Michael Cromartie, vice president of the Center, has agreed to serve as acting director until a new president is appointed.
