Barr on Afghanistan
by

I just got home from a Libertarian Party debate at Reason headquarters. I think Phil will have more on the event later, but one moment was especially odd: Dave Weigel asked the candidates if they favored any of the US interventions since the first Gulf War, and Bob Barr flatly said no. I asked him afterwards if that meant he was now against the war in Afghanistan. He answered that he didn’t have time to get into it during the debate, but he had “no problem at all going into Afghanistan” (though he seems to be against staying there now) — he just doesn’t consider it an “intervention.” That, of course, makes no sense.
