Ehud Barak on Office Hours Podcast

| May 01, 2017 Series: Office Hours

Ehud Barak was Israel’s 10th Prime Minister, leading the country out of prolonged recession and into an economic boom, with 5.9% annual growth, record foreign investments, near-zero inflation, a halved deficit, and substantially decreased external debt. Before being elected Prime Minister, Barak completed an illustrious 36-year career in the IDF as the most decorated soldier in its history. He led dozens of still-secret operations and a number of legendary commando raids, including those that freed hostages from a hijacked Sabena airliner in 1972, targeted PLO terrorist leaders in Beirut in 1973, and rescued hostages aboard an Air France jet hijacked to Entebbe Airport in Uganda in 1976.
