Democrat Stands By ‘Taliban’ Comment, Claims ‘Context’

Kyrsten Sinema, a democrat candidate in Arizona, recently spoke about her ‘offhand comment’ saying it was ‘fine’ if Americans went and fought for the Taliban. Although she recently tried to explain it away, she did not actually recant that statement, merely saying “I think understanding the context in which that conversation occurred, I don’t know if you’ve had an opportunity to listen to the tape, and heard Mr. Hancock, who is, again, a very interesting fellow, it was a very difficult conversation. I was really struggling to be able to talk about what I wanted to speak about and so an offhand comment to get us back on track was what I did to try to talk about the issue.”
