The GOP presidential candidates discussed foreign policy and national security during yet another debate on Tuesday night. The candidates attempted to subtle distinctions between each other in policies on Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Patriot Act, Iran, and Israel. Newt Gingrich, the current front runner, made waves when he suggested the party should not adopt an immigration policy that "destroys families that have been here a quarter-century."

Todd Zwillich, The Takeaway's Washington correspondent, and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist, CEO of Christie Strategies, and former special assistant to President George W. Bush, give their analysis of last night's debate.
