We applaud President Bush for establishing … a Forward Strategy of Freedom in the Middle East to stand with the people of that region as they seek their future in freedom. … We believe that democracy and reform will make those nations stronger and more stable, and make the world more secure by undermining terrorism at its source. …As a result of President Bush's leadership, G-8 members adopted the Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiative at this year's Sea Island Summit. We applaud the commitment of the world's leading industrial nations to this historic initiative to support political, economic, and social reform throughout the region.
