The most interesting thing to happen for many years in US politics. In decades, even. Maybe even in a century or two:
"The American people didn't go in. A few people advising this administration, a small number of people called the "neoconservatives" hijacked our foreign policy. They're responsible, not the American people. They're not responsible; we shouldn't punish them."
Well, actually, the American people have abdicated their civic responsibilities, so they are responsible. The media is also responsible, as the jackass Chris Wallace proves by his stupid comment about al-Q.
Ask yourself something: Which family of the American ruling elite has been very, very close to the bin Laden family for many, many years? Who is it that is a CIA asset from during the Afghan/Soviet war?
Wallace also acted as shill for the administration with his BS about bloodbath (like there's no bloodbath now) or about Iraqis that have assisted the Americans (like the US has welcomed Iraqi refugees with wide open arms). Those are all red herrings.
I suspect the hyena that's laughing throughout the debate is Giuliani the Freak.
"When we make a mistake it is the obligation of the people through their representatives to correct the mistake. No, we've dug a hole for ourselves and we've dug a hole for our party we're losing elections and we're going down next year if we don't change it. And it has all to do with foreign policy and we have to wake up to this fact."
Yes, foreign policy is the issue. It's all about foreign policy, so I'd like to know Ron Paul's position on the military-congressional-industrial complex, weapons give-aways (since the American taxpayer subsidizes weapons sales, the term is a huge misnomer) to genocidal and dictatorial regimes, and American participation in the Deep State.
Bush's arming of dangerous regimes and Dick Cheney's KBR-Halliburton war-profiteering are two examples of the foreign policy problem that the US must "wake up to".
Regarding honor, Governor Huckabee: You can't lose what you've never had.
There's more on this debate at Britain's Guardian.
Who won the debate on Rupert Murdoch's neoconservative channel?
Maybe it will be an interesting election year.
