basit igtetFormer 24-year Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman is handling a two-month, $100K project to promote the Washington image of Libyan politico Basit Igtet.

The former co-pilot for Emirates Airlines and Libyan Arab Airlines is founder of the Independent Libya Foundation and special envoy to the Libyan National Transitional Council for North and South American humanitarian aid. He served Libyan rebel forces as liaison to NATO during the fighting that ousted Col. Gaddafi.

Iget’s government relations services contract is with Lieberman’s firm, Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman.

The former Democratic VP candidate works with KBT&F’s Clarine Nardi Riddle, his ex-chief of staff, and Mark Heibrun, CIA and national security advisor in the first Bush administration.

Heibrun handled issues such as financial crime, cybersecurity, sanctions and export/import controls on trade of military equipment.
