Daniel Pipes and the U.S. Institute of Peace

President George W. Bush nominated Daniel Pipes to the board of the United States Institute of Peace on April 1, 2003. It went to the Senate the next day for confirmation.

In response, a number of militant Islamic and radical Arab organizations protested.

At the mark-up hearing on July 23, 2003, several Democratic senators opposed Mr. Pipes's nomination. They spoke so long that there was no longer a quorom in the room when a vote was to be taken.

Eager to have a full board at the USIP, President Bush recess appointed Mr. Pipes on August 22, 2003. He served on the board, making his presence felt, until January 2005.
