After the cut: a transcript of Mr. Santorum's remarks. It's a little word soupy.
RICK SANTORUM: Ah, I don't, you know, look, I, I wanna create every opportunity for women to be able to serve this country and, and they do so in an amazing and wonderful way and they're a great addition to the uh, and have been for a long time, to the uh, to the armed services of our country. Uh. But I, I am, I do have concerns about women in frontline combat. I think that could be a uh, a very compromising situation, where, where, people naturally uh, you know, may do things that may not in the interest of the mission, uh, because of other types of emotions that are involved, and I think that's probably, you know, it already happens of course with, with the camaraderie of, of men in combat, but it's, but it's uh, I think it would be even more unique if, if women were in combat and I think that's probably not in the best interests of men, women, or the mission.
