Foreign Policy Debate Question

We put a full-page ad in the Washington Post this week. It asks a question of President Bush and Senator Kerry — a question we dearly hope each will answer during their foreign policy debate tonight.

As I don’t believe paper ads in the Post are reproduced on the Post’s website, I made a pdf copy available here.

If you have the paper edition of Tuesday’s Washington Post, you can find the ad on page A5.

Addendum: Jim Lehrer asked the question (thanks!) as the final question of the debate. Both men expressed concern about trends in Russia, but in my humble opinion, neither said enough about what he would try to do about them. Still, the even discussing the matter in a forum of such prominence puts pressure on Putin, who would prefer that we look the other way.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
