New Group, Freedom's Watch, to Launch Major Advertising Campaign in Support of Victory in Iraq
WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today a new organization named Freedom's Watch announced it is launching a nationwide grassroots campaign aimed at ensuring Congress continues to fully fund the troops with the ultimate goal of victory in the War on Terror. Freedom's Watch is spending approximately $15 million on radio and television ads as well as grassroots activities from now thru mid-September and has partnered with a host of veterans organizations in an effort to ensure terrorism is confronted all over the world. The ads begin running today. "The mission of Freedom's Watch is to ensure a strong national defense and a powerful effort to confront and defeat global terror, especially in Iraq," said Bradley A. Blakeman, President of Freedom's Watch. "Those who want to quit while victory is possible have dominated the public debate about terror and Iraq since the 2004 election. Freedom's Watch is going to change that." In more than 20 states and dozens of congressional districts, Freedom's Watch advertisements will run and feature an 800-number for the public to call their representatives and urge them not to surrender to terror. "When it comes to protecting our country," continued Blakeman, "we'll spare no effort. Our goal is to make clear that when America goes to war, victory is the only outcome. That's what the troops are saying in these advertisements and what Freedom's Watch believes. We do not agree with those groups pressuring our lawmakers to abandon victory." Supporters of Freedom's Watch include Former U.S. Ambassador Anthony Gioia, Former U.S. Ambassador Kevin Moley, Former U.S. Ambassador Mel Sembler and Former U.S. Ambassador Howard Leach; Dr. John Templeton, Edward Snider, Sheldon Adelson, Richard Fox, Ari Fleischer, Gary Erlbaum, and Matt Brooks. Freedom's Watch is a 501(c)4 organization and is based in Washington, D.C. For more information about Freedom's Watch and to watch the ads please visit http://www.freedomswatch.org
