Claire McCaskill: $300 billion in Iraq is a lot of money

TALENT: What we’ve spent in Iraq & Afghanistan in total is 1% of the GDP. Look what Iraq is NOT doing. They’re not competing with Iran to sponsor terror in the region. They’re not threatening Kuwait. We don’t have to station troops in Saudi Arabia. They’re not trying to restart the nuclear weapon program. This is the part of the mission that’s been progressing because we know how to fight and we know how to train people how to fight.

McCASKILL: He just said the $300 billion was not a lot of money Both of them had brave troops that we support. Both of them, our military was doing a wonderful, magnificent job. This administration is not being held accountable for its mistakes. No one is asking the questions, no one is holding them accountable.
