Can Sanders Distinguish Himself From Clinton on Foreign Policy?

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has distinguished himself from his party rival Hillary Clinton when it comes to domestic economic issues, but when it comes to foreign policy that distinction is a bit more vague. Referring to his “no” vote on the Iraq War, Sanders has tried to sound more moderate on foreign policy, but has he got a full command of the issues at stake, especially when it comes to Syria and ISIS? Sanders has repeatedly called for sending American military equipment, air support and personnel to assist nations like Jordan and Saudi Arabia in fighting ISIS. What are the implications of this kind of policy in the region? To discuss Sanders’ position on the Islamic State is Peter Certo, an editor and writer at the Institute for Policy Studies.
