In a recent interview with NY Times Magazine, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) brushed off the national security concerns raised by 5 retired US generals who testified at a Senate Committee hearing on clean energy by saying that:
“There are a lot of generals who don’t like to be out of the limelight. They’d like to get back in”
These war veterans are ticked to say the least, and will be holding a press conference tomorrow in response to Inhofe’s dismissive and disrespectful statement.
According to the release,
“Military officials and veterans will hold a new conference call tomorrow at 1 p.m. ET to set the record straight on the national security threat climate change poses and call on Sen. Inhofe to apologize for his recent statement accusing military generals that are advocating for clean energy reform as merely engaging in a publicity stunt to get back into “the limelight.”
Stay tuned. We’ll cover this tomorrow.
