Washington, Oct. 23: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney sought to ally himself with President Barack Obama’s foreign policies during the third presidential debate, including the use of drones to target alleged terrorists overseas.
“I believe we should use any and all means necessary,” Romney said when asked if he agreed with the president’s policy.
“I support that entirely and feel the President was right to up the usage of that policy,” he added.
According to the Huffington Post, Romney added that his belief that killing terrorists did not make a complete counter-terrorism policy, something that he offered earlier in the night.
Drones are a source of tremendous debate across the world, with serious disagreement over whether they are a form of torture or inspire more terrorist activity than they eliminate, the report said.
But in a presidential campaign, where neither candidate wants to appear weaker than the other, there is little room for disagreement, it added. (ANI)
