That coalition, Torricelli wrote, “includes two former chairmen of the joint chiefs, two former CIA directors, a former attorney general and the former chairs of both political parties,” and spans the “ideological range,” comprising “everyone from Howard Dean and Patrick Kennedy to Newt Gingrich and John Bolton.”
