Inhofe: I'm not sure U.S. troops would be willing to fight for openly gay colleagues

Posting this for two reasons. One: If it’s a fair edit, it’s … quite a contrast with that milblogger statement yesterday. In fact, let me quote Uncle Jimbo’s addendum:

If I am lying by the road bleeding, I don’t care if the medic coming to save me is gay. I just hope he is one of those buff gay guys who are always in the gym so he can throw me over his shoulder and get me out of there.

Two: There’s a fair possibility that this isn’t a fair edit. It comes from a lefty site and is being touted by Think Progress, which has featured highly nuanced edits of Republican statements before. So consider this a fact-check opportunity. Did anyone catch this live on American Family Association radio? Anything out of context here? If so, e-mail and I’ll update.

Update: Minor correction: The program was AFR Talk and the video comes from the AFA Channel.
