Thursday’s episode of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network featured a taped portion of a debate between libertarian host John Stossel and conservative columnist Ann Coulter on war, drugs and same-sex marriage at the International Students for Liberty Conference held last weekend in Washington, D.C.

On war, Coulter, the author of “Mugged,” made the case that there are times when unleashing the U.S. military accomplishes one of the few roles that government was intended to fulfill.

“I’m for Iraq and against Afghanistan, but to explain that in a way that I think libertarians should appreciate,” she said. “There’s one thing the federal government should be doing, maybe two — regulate interstate commerce and protect us from enemies. And the Republican Party tradition is we should intervene, go to war, do whatever it is foreign policy-related when it makes America safer.”
