Romney’s Neocon Foreign Policy Plan

Presidential contender Mitt Romney has laid out his vision for a foreign policy in a Romney administration – and it looks like it could have been dreamt up by the same neocons who guided George W. Bush’s disastrous pursuit of permanent U.S. military dominance, as Lawrence S. Wittner reports.

Mitt Romney’s foreign policy advisers
Mitt Romney announced his shadow national security council to advise him on
foreign policy. How many of these people were against the Iraq Attaq? Any of
them? How many were with the Project for a New American Century? Don’t these
people have a college football team they could root for instead of starting
wars?

By the way, remember how Mormons like Brent Scowcroft used to have a bit of
a leg up in national security and FBI circles because Mormons were seen as
unlikely to have close family ties to foreign countries? Well, it’s good to
see that the Mormon Bias in foreign policy has largely been eradicated and
now we finally have a foreign policy establishment that Looks Like America.
[A little irony here.  Actually, it looks more like the student body of
Brandeis.)
