“This… effort to have forces on the ground [is] a swamp, whether it’s Afghanistan, Iraq, or Libya”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“I think it’s useful to use covert operations to get rid of Muammar Gadhafi, but I don’t think the U.S. should have troops there. I think this whole effort to have forces on the ground has turned out to be a swamp, whether it’s Afghanistan, Iraq or Libya. Because we are not prepared to be engaged deeply enough to change the culture, and we are [only] prepared to engage deep enough to get in and out. And that leaves you with the worst of all worlds. Because over time your enemies hate you, your very presence leads to more people...

“Only a grand strategy for…defeating radical Islamists across the world will lead to victory.”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“America currently lacks a unified grand strategy for defeating radical Islamism.  The result is that we currently view Iraq, Afghanistan, and the many other danger spots of the globe as if they are isolated, independent situations.  Only a grand strategy for marginalizing, isolating, and defeating radical Islamists across the world will lead to victory.”

“We will not allow Al Qaeda in our criminal courts”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“We are fighting a war against terrorists, yet we have no jail in which to house terrorists if we catch them because we refuse to utilize our detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay. We have no ability to properly interrogate terrorists because we have removed the CIA’s role in interrogation and reduced our interrogation methods to the Army field manual that is published online for our enemy to see in advance. We shouldn’t give advance notice to our enemy what will happen to them when we catch them. It’s as if the ACLU has displaced the CIA and become the United...

“We must and we can win in Afghanistan”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“We must never forget that the plot to kill Americans on 9/11 was hatched in the mountains of Afghanistan. As President, my decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan or Iraq would be based on military considerations and not on turns helping my personal political fortunes. We must and we can win in Afghanistan and we must provide General Allen the resources he needs to win. And we must return to the negotiation table with Iraq so that the peace is preserved there and to seek repayment for the heavy price we paid in liberating the Iraqi people from a brutal...

“Make no mistake the United States is at war with radical Islamic extremism.”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“We must first acknowledge that the United States is at War. The liberal left would have you believe that we are not. Make no mistake the United States is at war with radical Islamic extremism. The roots of this war grew when we failed to stand by the Shah of Iran and allowed radical Islam to take control of Iran. And the evidence of this war has reared its ugly head in horrific instances over the last few decades.”

“The death of Muammar el-Qaddafi is good news for the people of Libya…”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“The death of Muammar el-Qaddafi is good news for the people of Libya.  It should bring the end of conflict there, and help them move closer to elections and a real democracy. The United States should work closely with Libya to ensure the transition is successful, and that a stable, peaceful nation emerges.”

“The United States must remain a firm and steadfast ally for Iraq…”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“I’m deeply concerned that President Obama is putting political expediency ahead of sound military and security judgment by announcing an end to troop level negotiations and a withdrawal from Iraq by year’s end.  The President was slow to engage the Iraqis and there’s little evidence today’s decision is based on advice from military commanders. America’s commitment to the future of Iraq is important to U.S. national security interests and should not be influenced by politics.  Despite the great achievements of the U.S. military and the Iraqi people, there remain real threats to our shared interests, especially from Iran. The United...
