I had an uncle who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps. The story in our family was that when he came home, he just went up into the attic and he didn't leave the house for six months, stated Obama, during what was billed as an important speech on veterans.
My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton's Army.
He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain.
"We only have a certain number of them and if they are all in Iraq, then it's harder for us to use them in Afghanistan," stated Obama.
Obama also recently told the Orlando Sentinel that he would meet with Venezuela's dictator Hugo Chavez to discuss "his support of FARC in Colombia and other issues he would want to talk about."
However, the next day, Obama stated that any country supporting the Marxist guerillas of FARC should suffer "regional isolation."
"I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems," stated Obama during a major policy speech on the U.S. military.
Again, the "unproven" part comes as news — this time to the crew of the USS Lake Erie. The Aegis cruiser has racked up a double-digit string of successful intercepts, including a two-fer shoot down of multiple missiles at the same time and the destruction of a defunct U.S. spy satellite traveling at over 18,000 miles an hour.
So the only nuclear legislation that I've passed has been to make sure that the nuclear industry has to disclose whatever they emit anything that might be considered radioactive and share that with local and state communities. I just did that last year," stated Obama in Iowa in 2007.
