Color photo with authentic, hand written signature by William Sebastian Cohen (born 1940) who served as Secretary of Defense (1997-2001) under President Bill Clinton.
The autograph comes with a Certificate of Authebnticity.
After retiring from the Senate, Cohen was appointed by President Bill Clinton to the position of Secretary of Defense. This appointment was rare because it was one of the few political appointments that crossed party lines in recent history.
As Secretary of Defense Cohen played a large role in directing the United States military actions in Iraq and Kosovo, including the dismissal of Wesley Clark from his post as the NATO Supreme Allied Commander. Both Operation Desert Fox in Iraq and Operation Joint Guard in Kosovo were launched just months after al-Qaeda carried out the United States embassy bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya, in 1998.
