Maybe if Obama attended some of his intelligence briefings he might have some knowledge about what is going on with the military. Just 3 days before he made the above comment in the debate, a horse/soldier monument was dedicated at ground zero. This monument was to honor the first soldiers sent to Afghanistan in response to the 9/11 attack. Guess what? They had to go in on horses and they had bayonets! In fact, a British soldier was recently honored for leading a bayonet charge against the Taliban in 2011 in Afghanistan.
“The bayonet is still very much a useful tool," former U.S. Marine Doug Miller, of Hiawatha, Kan., told FoxNews.com. "That was kind of a dumb thing for him to say."
Miller, 64, a Vietnam veteran who served in the 3rd Battalion, 11th Marines Division, said the bayonet is indispensable for Marines in urban warfare, where they may have to go room to room in search of insurgents.
