Interview Highlights

– On President Obama’s recent announcement about U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan for the remainder of his term: “Here’s the one thing, this is typical Obama: 9,800 is what we have, and that’s what we need, and he said, ‘Well, OK, I’m gonna leave ‘em there, but by the end of 2016, we’re going to 5,500’ – he just made up a number. He cut the base in half, so to speak. Typical Obama: doing the right thing, but then withdrawing at the end ‘cause you’re worried about politics.”

– “Our foreign policy is in free fall. Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing, radical Islam is running wild, and somebody needs to stop this.”

–  “Look at what’s happened in the last couple of days. The Iranians are test-firing a missile that could hit Israel, in violation to UN sanctions. They’re testing the international community; does the international community have the guts to push back against Iran?”

– “Experience does matter when it comes to being commander-in-chief. I’ve been to Iraq and Afghanistan 35 times. I’ve been in the Air Force 33 years. Our foreign policy is in free fall. So the argument I would make on my behalf is that when it comes to being commander in chief, you need to know what you’re doing.”
