Ten Foreign Policy Questions for the Next President (3 of 8)

June 25, 2008 - Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA's Bin Laden Unit and author of three New York Times bestselling books, talks about the ten foreign policy questions that John McCain and Barack Obama must answer. In this video, Scheuer asks: 6) Why is Washington supporting the Russian and Chinese campaigns to annihilate parts of their Muslim populations? 7) Why has the U.S. government failed, since 1991, to secure the former Soviet Union's nuclear arsenal, leaving a chance for an islamist nuclear attack in America? 8) With talk about war with Iran again in the air, why has no binding Senate resolution been passed to forbit this president -- and all future presidents -- from starting premeditated offensive conflicts without the formal declaration of war by Congress that the Constitution requires? 9) With Senator McCain recently stating that it is obvious that a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq would place Israel in great danger, and having both he and Senator Obama publicly pledge to protect Israel's security, is there any real chance of U.S forces leaving Iraq in the forseable future? 10) Why do the candidates claim to follow the founders' foreign policy advice, when the founders warned that overseas intervention to build democracies would destroy our republic?
