Edwards Faults Clinton on Foreign Policy

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is stepping up his criticism of front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.

He's accusing the New York senator of following a two-faced foreign policy and failing to do enough to stop what he says is President Bush's march to war with Iran.

In remarks being delivered in Iowa City today, Edwards criticizes Clinton for backing Bush's labeling of Iran's Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. Edwards said that only allows Bush and Vice President Cheney to "rattle the sabers" of war. And he accused Clinton of "voting like a hawk in Washington, while talking like a dove in Iowa and New Hampshire."

Like Democratic rival Barack Obama, Edwards said he backs better diplomacy with Iran than has existed with the Bush administration.

The Clinton campaign has issued a statement saying Clinton backed the Revolutionary Guard declaration as a way to force diplomatic talks.
