Third Way Co-Hosts Reid Speech

Offers Strong Support for Leader in Fight with White House

Washington: Third Way today co-hosted a speech by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the topic of Iraq at the Wilson Center in Washington. Matt Bennett, Third Way’s Vice President for Public Affairs, spoke and introduced Center Director Lee Hamilton, who introduced Reid.

In remarks, Bennett praised Reid for “his leadership, his vision and his toughness in standing up for what he believes in and what is right for America.”

Bennett went on to say: “America’s future in Iraq is at a crossroads. We believe that continuing down the path that this country is on would be a tragic, potentially catastrophic mistake, compounding an already grievous set of errors on the part of the current administration. We are eager to hear the Majority Leader’s ideas on how the nation moves forward.”

Third Way has worked closely with Reid and others in Congress on crafting new approaches to security policy. For example, in September, Reid headlined a press conference releasing a Third Way report on the Bush defense record (The Neo Con: The Bush Defense Record By the Numbers), and in February, Assistant Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin led a press conference releasing a Third Way report critiquing the Bush approach on terrorism and offering a new way forward (Beyond Bush: A New Strategy of Constriction to Defeat Al-Qaeda and It’s Allies).
