WP Story on Iran Democracy Funding

The Washington Post has a great article today by Robin Wright on our joint efforts to cut Iran democracy funding.

An excerpt from the article:
"'Iranian reformers believe democracy cannot be imported and must be based on indigenous institutions and values. Intended beneficiaries of the funding -- human rights advocates, civil society activists and others -- uniformly denounce the program,' according to an open letter organized by the National Iranian American Council, the American Conservative Defense Alliance and the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. The letter was signed by 23 other liberal and conservative pro-democracy groups."
