"The Cafferty File": Push Craig out?Is the planned border fence between the U.S. and Mexico a good idea?
Jack, The border fence is not only a good idea, but it is imperative to US sovereignty and national security. 700 miles of fence will create "choke points" so the border patrol can concentrate resources where it will do the most good. It's a bit late for the question - since The Secure Fence Act is already the law of the land. Build the damn fence, the time for discussion is past! -Bill, Kirby, Texas
It disturbs me to think that a nation that celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall would ever propose building anything between our country and another. U.S. border fence= Berlin Wall!-Josh
Hi Jack. It is a big waste of taxpayer money. I live in San Diego. When you go east of the city, there is no fence. And there will never be a fence there. And anyone could walk across without being detected. The border states need to wise up and sour the milk so there isn't such a big attraction for undocumented individuals to come here. Stop giving them free medical care at any hospital they walk into. We pay BIG dollars for that. -Ron, San Diego, California
The only thing wrong with a 20-foot fence is a 21-foot ladder! Has a fence ever worked, Jack? Unless we want to become like the Soviet Union and erect an "iron curtain"? We've got to be smarter than that! -Leo, Beverly, Massachusetts
What does it mean if Afghanistan has become a long-term commitment for the U.S.?
Hi Jack, This administration has been such an utter failure it should surprise no one that our effort in Afghanistan has flopped. Maybe we could pay Afghan farmers not to grow poppies, like we pay farmers here not to grow stuff! -Dicky, Corpus Christi, Texas
Jack, Bush and Co.'s failure in Afghanistan is arguably even worse than the disaster in Iraq. This was the good war, the REAL war for 9/11, the one that had the support of the entire world, and they screwed it up just about as badly as they did in Iraq. The failure to gain any wisdom from the Soviets' experience is pathetic but not surprising... the sdministration can't even learn from its own failures -- how can we expect them to learn from someone else's? -Carl, Connecticut
