Obama's former Special Envoy for Middle East Peace
When it comes to negotiators, few have the reputation, tenacity and track record of George Mitchell. The former Senate Majority Leader has been tapped to forge peace treaties, investigate scandals, lead corporations, and navigate sensitive international conflicts. Most recently, Mitchell served the Obama Administration as Special Envoy for Middle East Peace from 2009-2011, a role informed by previous work in the region, specifically as the creator of the Mitchell Report on Arab-Israeli matters in 2001. Mitchell made history while chairing peace negotiations in Northern Ireland, culminating in the Good Friday Agreement for which he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
