Blunt-McCaskill
Election Returns

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Missouri’s U.S. senators are facing off today over recent foreign policy events.

As you might expect, the two are taking opposite sides over Mitt Romney’s criticism of the administration’s handling of the attacks on U.S. embassies in Libya and Egypt.

Republican Roy Blunt took aim at the statement released last night by the American embassy in Cairo, criticizing a video that was critical of the prophet Muhammad.

“It was a ridiculous position for us to take and apologizing for America is not the way you’re going to advance your cause,” Blunt said.

Democrat Claire McCaskill, meanwhile, said accusing the administration of apologizing for America is playing politics.

“I think if you checked in with Osama bin Laden, he would say there was no apology.”
