After leaving the Senate after 24-years in office, what is now-former independent Sen. Joe Lieberman going to do? He’s going to Disney World!

That is, if you consider Disney World to be The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs board of advisors.

“Senator Lieberman’s expertise on matters of national security and defense, as well as his commitment to the strategic relationship between the United States and Israel, will undoubtedly benefit JINSA as a member of our Board of Advisors,” David Steinmann, co-chairman of JINSA’s board of advisors, told The Daily Caller in a statement.

“We look forward to working with him in the years to come.”

Founded in 1976, JINSA is a non-partisan advocacy organization which seeks to promote “a strong U.S. military, a robust national security policy, and a strong U.S. security relationship with Israel and other like-minded democracies,” according to its website.

Lieberman was awarded JINSA’s Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson Distinguished Service Award in 1997.

JINSA’s board of advisers is comprised of numerous former American military officers as well as prominent political figures like former American Ambassador to the Untied Nations John Bolton, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell.
