For all the political rancor in Washington these days, commentator Joe Loconte says that there's at least one major issue on which the left and the right agree. It's the importance of human rights to U.S. foreign policy. Joe Loconte is a research fellow in religion at the Heritage Foundation and the editor of The End of Illusions: Religious Leaders Confront Hitler's Gathering Storm.
