Sweet blog: Obama foreign policy forum in NH webcast live at 10 a.m. Chicago time


HIGHLAND PARK, ILL.--This is the LINK to listen to Barack Obama's foreign policy forum, starting live at 10 a.m. Chicago time this morning.

The event, in Portsmouth, NH, includes Obama's top foreign policy advisors.

Participants to include...below is from the Obama campaign...

The following local and national foreign policy experts will join Senator Obama:

· Richard Danzig – Former Secretary of the Navy under President Clinton

· Tony Lake – National Security Advisor to President Clinton

· Adm. John Hutson (USN Ret.) – Bow, NH resident; Dean of Franklin Pierce Law Center; former U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General and nationally-known expert on detention and interrogation policy

· Samantha Power – Pulitzer Prize-winning author and renowned professor of human rights and foreign policy

· Susan Rice – Former Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs

· Gen. Jim Smith (USAF Ret.) – Salem, NH resident; retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General

· Ryan Gray (USMC Res.) – Goffstown, NH resident; served two tours in Iraq with the Marine Corps


Obama has a foreign policy? I guess it must be called "Ask someone else because I don't know what the hell I'm doing." The only candidate with foreign policy experience that is without peer is Joe Biden. Obama is still in diapers compared to Senator Biden. It's disgraceful that the media keeps focusing on these celebrity candidates and ignoring the ones with real leadership qualifications.

Hello. Joe Biden was Chair of the Foreign Relation committee during discussions BEFORE the Bush invasion of Iraq. The important thing is Joe Biden scheduled hearings that were supposed to inform the public about the advisability of military actions against Iraq. Joe Biden who had aspirations of running for President in 2004 STACKED the hearings with PRO-WAR panelists, the better to protect him for his support of any future invasion. Those dubious toward an Iraq military adventure were not heard by the American people. It was a cunning move by Joe Biden. He remains to my mind very untrustworthy.
