Andrew Rice on War & Peace

Democratic Challenger


Implement an orderly redeployment of US troops in Iraq

Rice believes that by never questioning the wisdom of this war, Senator Inhofe's rubber stamp support for the Bush Iraq War policy has betrayed American soldiers and their families who are asked to sacrifice; Congress should force Bush to implement an orderly redeployment of American troops from the Civil War in Iraq and adequately finance their health and well-being as they return home.

Refocus on identifying and destroying terrorist cells

Once the Iraq Civil War is no longer draining American lives and treasure, the US can refocus on identifying and destroying terrorist cells around the world. The US enjoyed one of our greatest successes since 9/11 when our intelligence forces cooperated with Pakistani intelligence to capture Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. Rather than refereeing a civil war, this surgical raid in a Pakistani village 4.5 years ago serves as an example of American strength against terror.
