Joe Sestak -- Progressive Fightin' Dem -- to Deliver Terrorism Policy Statement at Valley Forge

Joe Sestak served in the U.S. Navy for 31 years – achieving the rank of Vice Admiral. He commanded the George Washington carrier battle group that engaged in combat operations in Afghanistan and precursor operations to war in Iraq.

He also served as President Clinton’s Director of Defense Policy on the National Security Council. Following 9/11, he became the first Director of “Deep Blue”, the Navy’s anti-terrorism group that established the strategic and operational policies for the “Global War on Terrorism”.

Sestak has called the war in Iraq "a tragic misadventure" since announcing his candidacy February 1st. He will deliver his policy position on Iraq and the Global War on Terror at Valley Forge National Park, tomorrow, Wednesday June 7th, in front of supporters and veterans.
