Darin LaHood on Homeland Security

 

 


We kept WWII troops in Germany & Japan; do same in Iraq

On the day President Barack Obama pledged to send 450 more troops to Iraq to fight the Islamic State (ISIS), a potential congressman offered harsh criticism of the president's foreign policy: "I don't believe President Obama has handled ISIS in the right way," said Darin LaHood.

LaHood said "it was a mistake for President Obama to pull out our troops when he first got into office" because "we need to do everything we can to contain, stop and eliminate ISIS and radical Islam in the Middle East. If you look at any conflict the U.S. has been involved with for the last 100 years, we've kept troops there," said LaHood, listing Germany, Korea, Japan and Bosnia as examples. "That's why they're peaceful. To pull out our troops and have the disintegration of a country and Syria and the rise of ISIS is a mistake."

LaHood said his year as a terrorism prosecutor "gave me good insight into some of the scary things that are out there."

America's national security threats are real

America's national security threats are real, both abroad and at home. Having served as a chief prosecutor of an anti-terrorism unit, I understand the threats our nation faces and the vital role government plays in protecting lives at home and abroad for our country.
