Patriotic Americans of all political persuasions are increasingly concerned about the recent radical changes in U.S. foreign policy. There is mounting evidence that the present course will weaken rather than strengthen America’s own security; reduce rather than increase world stability; and create more hostility towards the United States rather than admiration for our dynamic economy and democratic way of life.
With this in mind, the Center for American Progress, The American Prospect magazine, and The Century Foundation are sponsoring a conference on U.S. national security titled, “New American Strategies for Security and Peace,” to be held at the Wardman Park Marriott in Washington, D.c= on October 28 and 29, 2003.
