Obama: No Nukes In Any Circumstances

From his die-hard fans at the Associated Press:

Obama says use of nuclear weapons to fight al-Qaida ‘not on the table,’


WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday he would not use nuclear weapons “in any circumstance.

I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance,” Obama said, with a pause, “involving civilians.” Then he quickly added, “Let me scratch that. There’s been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That’s not on the table…

However, when asked by The Associated Press after a breakfast with constituents whether there was any circumstance where he would be prepared or willing to use nuclear weapons to defeat terrorism and al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, Obama replied

“There’s been no discussion of using nuclear weapons and that’s not a hypothetical that I’m going to discuss.

When asked whether his answer also applied to the possible use of tactical nuclear weapons, he said it did…

Just when you thought he couldn’t say anything dumber.

It’s sometimes hard to believe he majored in international relations at college.


This AP story is now showing up in other outlets, like USA Today, so it would appear to be legit.
