Leon Fuerth is the former national security adviser to Vice President Al Gore and the founding director of the Project on Forward Engagement. As the Vice President’s national security advisor, he served on the Principals’ Committee of the National Security Council alongside the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, and the President’s own national security adviser. Fuerth organized and managed five bi-national commissions with Russia, South Africa, Egypt, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan.
