Mac Thornberry: ‘The Best Way to Keep Americans Safe Is a Strong United States Military’
THORNBERRY: "You know, I think they're hopeful. They're hopeful they will not be a political pawn like they have been for the last eight years. Remember that President Obama's position was he wouldn't spend another dime on the military unless we spent an equal amount for non military domestic spending. So I think the military is looking forward to standing on their own, looking at military needs, security needs on their own. And the rest of the story is I think they are looking forward to getting back to that fundamental truth that we've lost recently, the best way -- which is the best way to keep the peace, the best way to keep Americans safe, is for a strong United States military."
