State of Wisconsin secondary Archives: on Homeland Security

Phil Anderson: Bring troops home & eliminate war profiteering

Q: Do you support or oppose "Expand the military"?

A: No. We need a dominant defensive force. I support bringing troops home, ending foreign wars of aggression, auditing military spending to eliminate war profiteering, no-bid contracts, and cost-plus contracts.

Tim Michels: Give privatization one more chance after 9/11

FEINGOLD: Michels has to read the 9/11 report. We had privatized screening at the airports when those 19 Saudis went through with their box cutters & went into the planes & flew them into the World Trade Center. That's the way that privatizing works.

MICHELS: Of course, it's a great travesty what happened on 9/11-but because it didn't work once, he's like, that's it, it's failed, the government has to take it over.

FEINGOLD: Based on that logic, I suppose we should privatize our military, as well.

Tim Michels: I supported the war in Iraq and the world is much safer

FEINGOLD: We are better off Saddam Hussein is gone, but we are not safer.

MICHELS: I supported the war in Iraq, progress is being made and putting a democracy in place will make the Middle East and the world much safer. Osama bin Laden has his troops deployed in Iraq right now.
