The Foreign Policy Divide

EWI Associate Jacqueline McLaren Miller presents the foreign policy positions of the 2012 presidential candidates.  

"Domestic economic considerations have dominated and will continue to dominate much of the rhetoric in the presidential campaign, but President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are taking pains to draw sharp distinctions between their positions on foreign policy as well," writes Miller.

"And with U.S. and NATO soldiers still under fire in Afghanistan, an escalating civil war in Syria, and lingering concerns about Iran’s nuclear intentions," she continues, "there is no shortage of serious issues that the candidates need to address."
