With America focused so intently on dealing with – and responding to – the despicable terrorist attacks, economic policy issues have been put on the back burner. We feel
this is the right decision, and have chosen to defer publication of our regular update until next week. Instead, I have attached a CFP Strategic Memorandum
written by Dan Mitchell of the Heritage Foundation. I believe that Dan's memo is important because it explains how supporters of information exchange are attempting to exploit the suicide assaults in order to advance their agenda of tax harmonization. This is a disgraceful tactic on the part of our opponents and, as might be expected, their arguments are grossly inaccurate.
I would like to thank the many people from all over the world who have contacted the Center over the last nine days.
We appreciate your comments of support for the United States and the victims and families of this tragic act of war. Some have asked, "what can we do to help?" There are many ways to express support, but I hope you will indulge me by allowing me to highlight one option. I was an acquaintance of Barbara Olson, a passenger on the hijacked plane that was crashed into the Pentagon. Mrs. Olson was a friend to the Center, a strong advocate for conservative causes, and a brilliant defender of the rule of law. She will be greatly missed. I hope some of you will consider sending a donation to the Barbara Olson Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, c/o Office of Development, 55 Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y. 10003.
Once again, thank you for your expressions of support. I promise we will have a full report next week with a lot of positive and exciting news regarding the battle for
freedom and prosperity.
