The GOP’s War Identity Crisis

Op-ed by: Juliette Kayyem, lecturer in public policy with the Belfer Center and member of the Belfer Center Board of Directors
Topic: Republican party
“THE NOISY debate within the Republican party about its vision of the world, and America’s role in it, is exposing a deep ideological divide at its core. A new breed of Republican candidates like Michele Bachmann are heralding a ‘Come Home, America’ foreign policy. The Party’s more established wing, led by the Senator John McCain, who doesn’t exactly urge caution in military engagements from Iraq to Libya, worry that the isolationist ideology ‘seems to have moved more center stage.’”
Kayyem also wrote “War Ends, A Soldier at a Time” for the Boston Globe on December 26, 2011.
