Kyrsten Sinema on War & Peace
MCSALLY: Well, it's her words. It's totally out of step with American values.
Q: Sinema says this talk show host was going off presenting all kinds of hypothetical ideas, and she was just trying to shut him down and get back to the fact that she opposed the Iraq War, which was just about to start in 2003.
MCSALLY: This is a pattern from my opponent. Right after 9/11, Kyrsten Sinema was protesting any military action against terrorists. She was protesting later in a pink tutu. She was leading multiple protests, handing out flyers at her protest depicting American soldiers as skeletons and saying we are the ones conducting terror in the Middle East. Very much against our military.
Within a few days, President Bush had made statements that I felt polarized our world and pushed away those who sought to join us in grieving. As he began to talk about war, a small group of Phoenicians began to organize. The group started meeting regularly, and we eventually formed a coalition called Arizona Alliance for Peaceful Justice. Our reason for existence was simple: to advocate for a diplomatic solution to the problems facing us and prevent, as much as possible, any war that would hurt civilians and the innocent. While we very strongly supported efforts to find and root out terrorism, we were worried that President Bush's movement to wage war in Iraq was unjustified, based on false information, and bad for our country and our world.
