Ellison Speaks on The Public View of Missile Defense

March 25, 2004

On Monday, March 22, 2004, MDAA’s President and Founder delivered a powerful presentation on ‘The Public View’ of Missile Defense to a large number of attendees at the second annual Missile Defense Conference held at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington D.C.

The opening statement:

“I bring you very Good News from the American Public. What I present to you this afternoon are the views of the American Public on the issue of Missile Defense. I have been traveling across the U.S. for the past year and have debated, discussed and educated the American Public about the benefits of Missile Defense. I have engaged in 18 states, but more than just talking about Missile Defense, I have been listening to the people of this country and reflecting their views”.

The closing statement:

“For Missile Defense to be deployed, to continue to be developed, to continue to evolve and to be permanently in place for our national and homeland security. The American public views must be heard and their expectations have to be met. MDAA is intent on accomplishing this task. It is and will be a difficult challenge but not insurmountable. Over the next six months the most important thing we can do, is to make sure that our leaders understand how strongly the American public feels about this issue.”
