Mitt Romney could well become the most dangerous man in the world if he is elected to be the US President. The Wall Street Journal... “Mitt Romney is relying on both moderate and hawkish neoconservative advisers …” many of these advisers were Bush operatives.
Some of the names from Romney’s list are as follows…
- Henry Kissinger (Nixon’s Secretary of State)
- James Baker (George H.W. Bush’s Secretary of State)
- Cofer Black (former CIA official, former vice president of Blackwater International)
- Eliot Cohen (George W. Bush’s State Department official)
- Paula Dobriansky (George W. Bush’s State Department official)
- Norm Coleman
- John Bolton (George W. Bush’s former UN ambassador)
- John Lehman (Reagan’s Secretary of the Navy)
- George Shultz (Reagan’s Secretary of State)
- Richard Williamson (George W. Bush’s Assistant Secretary of State)
- Michael Chertoff (Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary)
- Michael Hayden (created warrantless wiretapping programs for Bush)
“Mr. Romney’s campaign rhetoric suggests he isn’t shying away from some of the tough policies advocated by his party’s neoconservatives. He has issued sharp warnings about steps he would take to keep Iran from securing a nuclear weapon, dubbed Russia the nation’s ‘No. 1 geopolitical foe’ and has promised severe sanctions against China.”
“There is John Lehman, the Secretary of the Navy in the Reagan administration, who sources say is a lead actor in the Romney cast. Then there are Michael Chertoff and Michael Hayden, the Homeland Security secretary and CIA director who both served under President George W. Bush. Two former GOP senators, Norm Coleman of Minnesota and Jim Talent of Missouri, also are on Romney’s team.
The supporting cast is also composed of Washington’s security and foreign policy veterans: Eric Edleman and Dov Zakheim, who held high-level Pentagon posts under the younger Bush. Zakheim’s son, Roger, a senior staffer on the House Armed Services Committee, is also assisting Romney, along with Dan Senor and Megan O’Sullivan, who emerged as major players during the Iraq war.”
