[Watch] Sen. Tom Cotton: ‘Too Many Empty Beds’ At Gitmo

There’s a reason not all good conservatives should be running for president.  We  need them elsewhere.  This morning, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas proved why men like him are needed in places like the Armed Services Committee.  They are there to speak the truth.

The video below contains one of the most pointed question and answer sessions seen so far this year.  Kudos to Sen. Cotton for not mincing words.

 “Islamic terrorists don’t need an excuse to attack the United States.  They attack us for who we are. It is not a security decision–it is a political decision based on promise the president made on his campaign. To say that is a security decision based on propaganda value is a pretext, a justified political decision.”

Thank you, sir.  One almost felt sorry for Principal Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Brian McKeon as he took that diatribe that really should sit on someone else’s shoulders.
