Take note--JD disagrees with Obama on this one

Just in case you think this blog is a laydown for all Democrats on all issues think again.
The Obama administration is wrong on this one. AP reported it this way.
The Obama administration has decided not to sign an international treaty banning land mines. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly says the administration recently completed a review and decided not to change the Bush-era policy. More than 150 countries have agreed to the Mine Ban Treaty's provisions to end the production, use, stockpiling and trade in mines. Besides the United States, holdouts include: China, India, Pakistan, Myanmar and Russia.
