Virginia Foxx, EdD, MA Biography
||Member of the US House of Representatives (R-NC)
||Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"The current war effort in Iraq has not been as effective as it could have been, with substantial setbacks and the tragic loss of American lives. Yet, there has been positive news in the Global War on Terror. America has not experienced an attack on our soil since 9/11. In fact President Bush recently outlined numerous attacks that have been prevented and spoke of real successes in defeating terrorism around the globe. Regrettably many of those successes go unnoticed or are classified. While there have been setbacks, there has been progress and Americans are safer at home because of these efforts."
