Cain Worried about Taliban Influence ... In Libya
In Orlando today, Herman Cain discussed his answer on Libya to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. From Politico:
“Do I agree with siding with the opposition? Do I agree with saying that Qadhafi should go? Do I agree that they now have a country where you’ve got Taliban and Al Qaeda that’s going to be part of the government?” Cain asked reporters, rhetorically. “Do I agree with not knowing the government was going to — which part was he asking me about? I was trying to get him to be specific and he wouldn’t be specific.”
For Cain, whose campaign recently tried to fight back the narrative that he doesn’t know anything about foreign policy by stressing that he had been studying for months now, this has not been a good week. Next week, AEI and Heritage are hosting a GOP debate that will focus on foreign policy and national security. For Cain, that’s going to be an especially crucial debate.
