Ehrlich clueless on foreign policy

IranRobert L. Ehrlich Jr.Benjamin Netanyahu

Robert Ehrlich Jr.'s recent column ("Obama's foreign policy reset has little to show for it," Oct. 28) could not be further from the truth when it states that Iran is "oh-so-close to acquiring a nuclear weapon." In fact, our own intelligence agencies have stated that Iran has neither nuclear weapons nor a weapons program and ended its former program in 2003.

Mr. Ehrlich has been wrong about his support for a disastrous war in Iraq, his calling for military action in Iran and his willingness to allow Israel to dictate U.S. foreign policy. His heroes are the warmongering Charles Krauthammer, John Bolton and Benjamin Netanyahu, all of whom are a danger to America.

It is time for the former governor to find something that he is competent to write about. Clearly, he is clueless when it comes to foreign policy.
