U.S. Should Talk to Iran, Says Bob Barr

"While the Bush administration has steadfastly declined to engage in talks with the government of Iran, five former Secretaries of State - Republican and Democrat - recently exhibited a great deal more judgment and understanding of world affairs in calling for actual talks with Tehran," Libertarian Presidential nominee Bob Barr says.

“Talking does not mean sacrificing U.S. interests.  Rather, talking is a means to further U.S. interests,” Barr explains.

Barr on Ike: “Let the People Go Home”

"There is something inherently wrong with the government forcibly keeping people away from their homes and property," says Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party's nominee for president, in response to the government's continuing and heavy-handed attempt to bar Hurricane Ike evacuees from returning to their homes in Texas.

"There is, of course, an obvious risk to returning to a disaster area," says Barr. "However, government should not forcibly prevent evacuees from returning to their own houses and property.  It is their choice, for better or for worse, to return to their homes."
