Several conservatives who sat in on closed-door meetings at last week's Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., came away worried by GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's foreign and defense policies.
Two of Mitt Romney's top foreign policy advisers slammed the Obama administration this week for failing to address a mounting humanitarian catastrophe in Sudan, saying Mr. Obama's mishandling of the region's ongoing crisis offers a window into how a Romney White House would do things differently.
"My experience goes back to an awful lot of presidential campaigns, and generally, you just don't know these things," said Richard Williamson, who served key positions in the George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush administrations as well as the Reagan administration.
As for what Mr. Romney would do, Mr. Williamson said that "when atrocities are committed, he'll speak out against those who commit them, whereas the Obama administration has been quiet. Second, we'll demand humanitarian access, and that's one of the tragedies. Right now, Khartoum is preventing it."
