Freedom House Declares 2005 A Success
It seems that Murtha and Kerry got it wrong on Americas direction. Freedom House is made up of all parties and is non partisan. You can read about them here.
In this release on the 19th things are looking good. An excerpt
"The Global Picture Thus Suggests That 2005 Was One Of The Most Successful Years For Freedom Since Freedom House Began Measuring World Freedom In 1972. ... While The Precise Impact Of Democracy Promotion Policies Is Often Difficult To Measure, It Is By Now Clear That The Efforts By The Established Democracies To Expand Freedom's Reach Are Paying Dividends. Democracy Promotion Has Always Had Its Critics, And The Critics' Objections, As Might Be Expected, Have Been Amplified During A Controversial War. But If The Gains For Freedom Revealed In This Survey Tell Us Anything, It Is That The Policies Of The United States, Europe, And Other Free Societies Are Achieving Some Crucial Goals. These Efforts Should Be Strengthened, Not Diminished."
The efforts should be stregthened.......I hope the Democrats hear that.
