RICHARD PERLE DEBATE WITH HOWARD DEAN RETRANSMITTED ON C-SPAN "AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY POST SEPTEMBER 11"

RICHARD PERLE DEBATES HOWARD DEAN AT PACIFIC UNIVERSITY, PORTLAND, OREGON

February 19, 2005 - 8 PM EST

On Thursday, February 17, 2005, Richard Perle debated Howard Dean during the Tom McCall Forum at Pacific University, Portland, Oregon.

Richard Perle is the former Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Reagan and is also the former Chairman of the Defense Policy Board during the first term under President George W. Bush. Currently, Mr. Perle is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Howard Dean is the former Governor of Vermont, former democratic candidate to the democratic presidential nomination in last year's election. Mr. Dean has recently been nominated chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

The Tom McCall Forum is named after Tom Lawson McCall, who was Governor of Oregon from 1967-75. The forum is "the" major public affairs event in the Pacific Northwest.

Mr. Perle and Mr. Dean analyzed how the events of 9/11 have influenced American foreign policy and how, with the war in Afghanistan and the liberation of Iraq, the U.S. entered a new era of foreign policy with terrorism as its centerpiece. They also discussed the long term impact of these events in our relations with NATO as well as with nations in the Middle East and the rest of the world. And, finally, they gave their views on whether pre-emptive war should become the benchmark of American foreign policy in the future.

As Richard Perle, one of the intellectual proponents of the liberation of Iraq, began his opening remarks a protester stormed the front of the podium and threw a shoe at him. Commenting on the incident, Mr. Perle said: "He's passionate --and fortunately he's inaccurate with his shoe."

C-Span taped the event which is entitled "American Foreign Policy Post September 11," and is to be aired Saturday, February 19, 2005, at 8 PM EST (please consult your local TV guide for schedule in your city.)
