George W. Bush and John Kerry Debate (9/30/2004)Streaming Video - 2004
In this September 30, 2004 ABC News debate, presidential candidates President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry respond to Jim Lehrer's questions about their positions on preventing terrorist attacks, the Iraq invasion, strategies to achieve freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan, strengthening national security, nuclear proliferation in North Korea and Iran, the Darfur genocide, and Vladimir Putin's policies. Kerry criticizes Bush's failure to exhaust all diplomatic efforts before striking preemptively in Iraq, while shifting focus from Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. Bush accuses Kerry of changing position on the Iraq invasion and damaging troop morale. Kerry points out that North Korea has developed nuclear weapons while the U.S. has occupied Iraq, and advocates stronger non-proliferation strategies. Bush argues that spreading freedom and democracy in the Middle East are crucial in the War on Terror.
