A liberal national security group will run a new ad about the consequences of a potential war with Iran on CNN before and after Monday’s foreign policy debate.
The ad from the Truman National Security Project questions the cost of a war with Iran and the lack of an exit strategy.
“There’s a lotta guys on TV talking about a war with Iran, and nobody can tell me how this ends,” a veteran says as pictures of former Vice President Dick Cheney and John Bolton, who served as Ambassador to the United Nations in the George W. Bush administration, flash in the background.
“My friends and I — I think we deserve an answer,” the vet says.
Stephanie Dryer, a spokeswoman for the Truman Project, said the group plans to run the ad on CNN for Monday’s debate, and will have future buys as well. She declined to say how much is being spent on the ad campaign.
The Truman Project also released a video game Friday with the ad, which lets players be the president in a confrontation with Iran.
The game is a “choose your own adventure” scenario with options such as whether to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities unilaterally or with a coalition.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, there’s no way to avoid U.S. casualties, Iranian retaliation and massive regional escalations in the game. The video game underscores the Truman Project’s ad campaign messaging that Republicans are risking a repeat of Iraq with even larger consequences by threatening to go into Iran.
