Ann Wagner on Homeland Security
As a former U.S. Ambassador, Ann saw firsthand the real threat of terrorism. She experienced the complex nature of defending our country by working with foreign allies to help freeze terror assets and fight our global war on terror.
Ann believes it is extremely important to support those who defend our freedom and fight for our country. As the mother of a son in the military, Ann understands the sacrifices that the men and women of the military make for our safety and liberty. She supports giving deference to commanders on the ground to make the necessary assessments of security situations.
Ann also believes in maintaining a strong relationship with Israel, an ally in the fight for freedom and peace in the Middle East.
