Foreign Policy Frustration

Mitt Romney didn't mention Afghanistan in his convention speech. Yesterday in Sioux City, President Obama made the following claim:
That claim glosses over the fact that the President is directly responsible for using drones to attack suspected terrorists, a policy that has killed many innocents. Mitt Romney meanwhile seems determined to stay in Afghanistan and has surrounded himself with neocons who have yet to meet a foreign country they do not want to eventually invade.

Choosing between a person who will likely undertake more unwise and unnecessary foreign adventures or a person who will cause more innocent civilian deaths as he increasingly relies on a machine straight out of a video game leaves voters with no moral option.
