Scarborough: The blood will be on the Pentagon’s hands if it lowers standards for women troops
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Steve [Rattner], there is a difference. There is a difference physically, for the most part, in what men are able to accomplish and what women are able to accomplish out on a battlefield, on a football field, around a track. Again, this is not shocking. This is not open to debate. And by the way, I just want to be very clear because I’m sure people are freaking out right now, I’m not saying I don’t want women in combat. Women can be in combat, but I’ll be damned, if we find out that the Pentagon is lowering standards for politically correct reasons, then you know what? Then the blood of the dead americans in future battles will be on their hands. That’s what we’ve got to make sure doesn’t happen.
