Distortion

Sen. Obama yesterday:



McCain responds today:
McCain says Obama clearly has no understanding of military history
in the U.S. and how this country projects its spheres of influence.

“We fought a war with Japan and Germany. Afterwards we maintained
a military presence there, which we are doing today. We fought a war in
Korea, we maintained a military presence in Korea, which we are doing
to this day. The first Gulf War, we threw Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait,
and we have a military presence there to this day,” McCain told reporters
aboard his campaign plane.

“So he doesn’t either, hasn’t read or understand … the history of this
country in warfare, and the way that we secure alliances and secure the
peace. That’s through military government to government agreements
that call for United States presence and mutual defense. Not only in that
country itself, but also in the region. … So in all due respect, it displays a
fundamental misunderstanding of history and how we’ve maintained national
security, and what we need to do in the future to maintain our security in
the face of the transcendent challenge of radical Islamic extremism. And
I understand that because he has no experience or background in any of
it,” McCain said.
