Mark and FDD
Dubowitz joined FDD in 2003 after a stint as a venture capitalist. He co-authored several reports on the Iran issue for the FDD. He is an asset to FDD, who dared to challenge Iran’s unlawful practices against the U.S. The book ‘The Iran Wars’ dubbed him as a financial warrior.
Mark Dubowitz had made clear statements on the Iran regime which gives some transparency to his goals of a regime change and argues that Iran would succumb to its own foul activities if the U.S takes aggressive actions. He now advises the Trump government on Iran and feels that the President should offend against the Iran regime and consider taking economic sanctions.
