Inhofe Assembles 'Squad' to Undermine U.S. Policy

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R) of Oklahoma sure is on a roll when it comes to attacking the White House. Last month, he raised the specter of a "revolution." A couple of weeks ago, he told constituents President Obama is "obsessed with turning terrorists loose in America."


Now the right-wing senator intends to undermine the administration's international efforts.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) has announced to National Review that he will be personally leading a "truth squad" to the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference, where he will make it clear to international leaders not to believe that the United States will pass legislation to deal with the issue.

"Now, I want to make sure that those attending the Copenhagen conference know what is really happening in the United States Senate," said Inhofe. "Some people, like Senator Barbara Boxer, will tell the conference, with Waxman-Markey having passed in the House, that they can anticipate that some kind of bill will pass EPW."

It's nice to see how seriously foreign policy is taken these days -- when a member of the political minority will send his own delegation to an international conference, in order to undermine the government and tell other countries that they can't work with the United States.
