Guest: Jim Parmelee, Chairman of the Northern Virginia Republican Political Action Committee and President of Republicans United for Tax Relief
Shouldn’t even die-hard Republicans reconsider whether continuing Bush foreign policy is helping or harming America?
1) Treatment of detainees — Is indefinite detention without charges or trial an American value? Is torture an American value? How again does this help spread democracy and freedom throughout the world? Does this help America be a “light unto the nations:?
2) The War on Iraq — Isn’t it time to admit that continuing to occupy Iraq makes us LESS secure? Not just because we can’t deal with the serious threats in North Korea and Iraq and Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. But because leaving Iraq to civil war/anarchy now is better than leaving Iraq to civil war/anarchy 10 years later after several thousand more Americans are dead and tens of thousands more wounded (not to mention countless Iraqis)?
