"Obama keeps talking about getting rid of all nuclear weapons. He’s already significantly reduced our capabilities there."

Terrorist detainees "were not covered by the Geneva Convention. They were unlawful combatants. And under those circumstances, they were not entitled to the normal kinds of courtesies and treatment."
7 would be more accurate, maybe more
"We have four combat-ready brigades out of 40 in the U.S. Army."
