In his Farewell Address, George Washington famously urged Americans to avoid entanglement in the affairs of other countries. That advice was also shared by Thomas Jefferson and others of the Founding Era.

In his 1821 Independence Day address, President John Quincy Adams warned his fellow citizens that Americans must avoid the temptation to go abroad in search of monsters to destroy, warning that such constant intervention would corrupt our own country and eventually destroy our liberty.

Today, unfortunately, America's foreign policy elite insist that the US has a duty to carry out so-called "humanitarian interventions" overseas in countries that are riven by political, ethnic, and religious strife. We are told that it is immoral to refrain from intervening when people are being killed. Yet those interventions never seem to make things better -- and often seem to make things worse -- for the supposed beneficiaries of Washington's armed benevolence.

According to Ivan Eland, Director of the Center on Peace & Liberty at the Independent Institute, says that this is because US interventions are following an approach that is perfectly calibrated for failure.

Dr. Eland is a widely respected national security and military affairs analyst whose scholarly writings have been published in journals such as Issues in Science and Technology, the Middle East and International Review, and the Northwestern Journal of International Affairs. His op-ed columns have appeared in USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and scores of other major newspapers. Dr. Eland has also testified before many congressional committees dealing with foreign affairs and national security. We are honored to have him join us today.
