Promises about Military on GOP Pledge-O-Meter

Pass 'clean' military spending bills

Troop funding bills "will not be held up by unrelated policy changes, or extraneous domestic spending and pork-barrel projects."

Keep "combatants" in Guantanamo Bay

Will keep terrorist combatants in Guantanamo Bay, not in local jails or courtrooms.

Demand an overarching detention policy

Will "work to ensure foreign terrorists, such as the 9/11 conspirators, are tried in military, not civilian, court."

Oppose extending "Miranda Rights" to foreign terrorists

Will "oppose all efforts to force our military, intelligence and law enforcement personnel operating overseas to extend 'Miranda Rights' to foreign terrorists."

Fully fund missile defense

Will "work to ensure critical funding is restored to protect the U.S. homeland and our allies from missile threats from rogue states such as Iran and North Korea."

Fund weapons research

"We will once again fund weapons’ research and development not just to meet the threats of today, but those of tomorrow."

Update nuclear warheads

"And we will update our nuclear warheads."
