Tuesday at an event with Rudy "9-11" Guiliani, Mitt Romney declared with emphasis that he "certainly would have taken that action [himself]." The action he was referring to was giving the order for Navy SEAL Team Six to go into Pakistan and kill or capture Bin Laden.
Shake the Etch-a-Sketch, folks. Here's Mitt Romney in 2007, responding to the right wing frenzy over candidate Obama's statement that he would launch military strikes in Pakistan if necessary:
"I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours... I don't think those kinds of comments help in this effort to draw more friends to our effort," Romney told reporters on the campaign trail.
Obama on Wednesday said if elected president in November 2008 he would be willing to launch military strikes against al Qaeda targets inside Pakistan with or without the approval of the Pakistani government of President Pervez Musharraf.
"If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will," Obama said.
Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is one of the Republican front-runners, said U.S. troops "shouldn't be sent all over the world." He called Obama's comments "ill-timed" and "ill-considered."
"There is a war being waged by terrorists of different types and nature across the world," Romney said. "We want, as a civilized world, to participate with other nations in this civilized effort to help those nations reject the extreme with them."
Later, Romney emphatically denied that he opposed entering Pakistan for the purpose of taking out Bin Laden, saying he clearly stated that "it was naive to announce [Obama] would enter Pakistan".
