  1. John McCain:

    There is recent progress in Iraq. Three-thousand U.S.-trained and equipped Iraqi forces are among those who have encircled Ramadi and are poised for an operation to retake the city from ISIS. Shipments of U.S. weapons are finally arriving to fighters in a timely fashion. But while Defense Ash Carter has not ruled out the use of forward air controllers, Defense Ash Carter said : I talked about that with our commanders … here. They have not recommended us taking that step at this time. Critics in Washington, like Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., have excoriated commanders for not recommending them. Obviously ISIS is winning in Iraq and for you not to be in favor of us having forward air controllers on the ground in some scholastic answer, you know full well as I do -- forward air controllers make the difference.

  2. Robin Steenman:

    They [ students ] are sitting there listening to this, and all they're hearing is' Mexicans are dirty, inferior in scholastic ability. They have skin problems and lice' and it just goes on and on and on about it, and I submit that's what they're going to take from that book, because they're just not ready.
