Vice President Dick Cheney will address the AIPAC policy conference. This marks the second year in a row that the vice president will speak at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s benchmark event. Cheney represents the Bush administration’s hardest line on containing Iran’s nuclear program, a central strategy for the pro-Israel lobby powerhouse. The conference runs March 11-13; Cheney speaks March 12. Leaders of both parties in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate also will speak. It will also will be the first speech to AIPAC by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in her capacity as House speaker.
