Ron Paul to Address Johns Hopkins Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies 9-11-2007Submitted by Michael Nystrom on Mon, 09/10/2007 - 23:43
Confounding critics who deride his international policy approach as naÃ¯ve or simplistic, the prestigious Johns Hopkins Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C., has invited Ron Paul to make a keynote policy address on September 11.
Ron Paul will be speaking on â€œA Tradtional Non-Intervention Foreign Policyâ€ â€“ topic that has likely languished in most US international schools and think tanks in the modern era. Says one source close privy to the negotiations surrounding the invitation, â€œThis school is engaged in a 20th century, interventionist, foreign policy approach. For them to invite him to make a major address like this shows how seriously his views are being taken by the educational establishment and by the political establishment in general.â€
And he adds, â€œThis election has come down to Ron Paul versus the rest of the Republican candidates. He has set the party on its ear, and anyone who thinks that he is a so-called fringe candidate at this point is not grasping reality."
The announcement reads as follows:
"A Traditional Non-Intervention Foreign Policy"
11 a.m. to Noon - Kenney Auditorium, Nitze Building
Ron Paul, Republican congressman and 2008 presidential candidate, will discuss this topic. For more information and to RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.587.3237.
