Sam Granato on Homeland Security
Lee supported continuing the "don't ask, don't tell policy" banning gays from openly serving in the military. Granato called for a repeal, saying many gays now serve honorably and the policy is an affront to them.
Lee opposes the passage of START and the CTBT; Granato supports passing both.
Lee opposes passing the CTBT because, he said, it's better for the U.S. to decide whether to test its nuclear weapons rather than signing on to a treaty that would tie its hands in the future. Lee also opposes ratification of START, which the Senate Foreign Relations Committee plans to mark up in September after the congressional recess.
"He's come out and said we should do nuclear testing. I'm adamantly opposed to nuclear testing," Granato said in a brief interview. "We know what these weapons can do. How many times do we need to prove how dangerous they are by testing them again? We need to strive toward a nuclear-free world."
