Conference Theme: "First Freedoms and Terrorism"

One of the great challenges we face in this generation is to wage a War on Terror without losing our moral footing and democratic ideals. The heinous images delivered through the media of beheadings, hangings and torture of innocent men, women and children — all in the name of religion — remind us that religious freedom and democratic ideals come at great cost. Although we cannot shrink from the decisive use of force to defeat the enemies of freedom, our ability to bring a robust sense of ethical responsibility as media gatekeepers and policy makers could be one of democracy’s strongest weapons.
