CBS’s 60 Minutes has offered a look inside the policies of President Barack Obama and his opponent Gov. Mitt Romney with an eye toward the November election. In the course of a show-long piecing-together of interviews the topic turned to foreign policy, and those used to the soft-serve foreign policy debate of the campaign so far will be right in their comfort zone, as the two candidates differed in a very marginal, very vague sort of way.
Gov. Romney struck first, pushing the idea that the problems with US relations in the Middle East could be taken care of by berating Egypt and insisting that all foreign aid and diplomatic support was 100% contingent on keeping their treaty with Israel unchanged, adding that he would make it clear to every nation in the region that “Israel is our ally.”
