Dems Talk National Security
March 29, 2006 - 11:47am ET
Thanks to RawStory for posting a leaked PDF copy of the Democrats' new vision for national security, which will be officially released at a press conference midday. Unfortunately, about half of it reads upside down, but a quick scan of the legible part shows Democrats deserve praise for highlighting U.S. energy dependence issues and calling for the elimination of the "economic, social, and political conditions that allow extremism to thrive." Good start. But are the Democrats offering a full-blown vision that challenges the Bush paradigm? Do they dispute the notion, shared by many, that we're in the midst of a "long war" against "terror" or "ideologies of hatred"? We'll publish a full analysis on TomPaine.com later this week examining these and other questions.
