Romney’s recently-announced foreign policy team is packed with veterans of George W. Bush’s administration, Agence France-Press reports, including Dan Senor, spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority that ruled Iraq after the invasion; Meghan O’Sullivan, Bush’s deputy national security adviser on Iraq and Afghanistan; former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff; Michael Hayden, who headed the C.I.A. during Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program. Those advisers — plus the tone of his speech — show a pushback from Obama’s fairly minor course correction following the Bush administration.
