New Group, Freedom's Watch, to Launch Major Advertising Campaign in Support of Victory in Iraq

Aug 22, 2007, 01:00 ET from Freedom's Watch

    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,
