The Peril of America's Middle East Policies

A 22 year veteran of the U.S. Congress, Republican Paul Findley (R-IL) is most remembered for speaking out against the powerful pro-Israeli lobby, which has been described as “the 700 pound gorilla in Washington”, and its role in driving U.S. foreign policy. Paul Findley has written many books including “They Dare to Speak Out: People and Institutions Confront Israel's Lobby”, “Deliberate Deceptions: Facing the Facts About the U.S.-Israeli Relationship”, founded The Council for the National Interest, a non-partisan grassroots organization that advocates a new direction for U.S. Middle East policy, and has appeared on numerous programs including NBC's Meet the Press, The Today Show, and CNN Crossfire.

On January 25, Mr. Findley will speak about the history of America's failures in the Middle East and the effects of its misguided foreign policy in fomenting 'The War on Terrorism'. He will describe the powerful interests on both sides of the Congressional aisle that drive one-sided policy and will provide a practical solution to winning the 'War on Terrorism' and restoring America's reputation worldwide.
