Bush’s ‘national disaster’

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:”Retired General Who Campaigned for Dole Says Bush’s Foreign Policy is a ‘National Disaster.”” CNN. “Retired Gen. Tony McPeak, the Air Force chief of staff during the first Gulf War, delivered the Democratic radio address supporting implementation of the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations for national security. McPeak, a former fighter pilot who campaigned for Bob Dole in 1996 as well as Bush in 2000, said Bush’s inability to craft a true allied coalition was a serious deficiency. Bush has alienated our friends, damaged our credibility around the world, reduced our influence to an all-time low in my lifetime, given hope to our enemies, he continued. “The real deal for me is not whether a strategy or a plan or an idea is Republican or Democrat, but whether it makes us safer,” he said. “And it means an awful lot to me that John Kerry fought for his country as a young man.”Jason CoeAspen
