Edwards To Speak In Harlem On War Escalation

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards will give a speech tomorrow afternoon at the historic Riverside Church in Harlem and will call on Americans to contact their Congressional representatives to voice opposition to the Bush-McCain Doctrine of escalating the war in Iraq.

"Silence is betrayal. Speak out," Edwards is expected to say, based on excerpts of his prepared remarks. "Tell your elected leaders to block this misguided plan that is destined to cost more lives and further damage America's ability to lead. And tell them also, that the reward of courage is trust."
