US to honor Ehud Barak

Published: 11.29.12, 07:18 / Israel News

Outgoing Defense Minister Ehud Barak will receive the highest award he could be given by a US secretary of defense when he visits the Pentagon on Thursday, three days after announcing his exit from political life next year.

 

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has known the Israeli leader since President Bill Clinton's administration, when Panetta was chief of staff and when Barak served in roles including foreign minister. Barak and Panetta speak regularly, with three conversations alone during the crisis in Gaza this month. (Reuters)
