CPAS Press Release: "Where's Rudy? Coalition Supports All Other GOP Candidates Who Oppose LOST"

The Coalition to Preserve American Sovereignty today issued a press release which noted the swell of support among Republican Presidential candidates for the notion that LOST is corrosive of U.S. sovereignty and should be rejected. Thus far, Rudy Giuliani remains the only major Republican candidate to no make a statement repudiated the treaty.

Here's a statement by former Arkanasas Governor Mike Huckabee featured in the release:

"…the dumbest thing we’ve ever done. It’s like taking our sovereignty and handing it over to some international tribunal. What’s wrong with us?...the Law of the Sea Treaty essentially would say that the United States would give up certain controls of its territorial waters, it would give up its sovereign understanding of what it can do within its own seas both at the surface and within the depths, and that we would virtually hand ourselves over to an international body of justice. "
