Cain stumbles talking about intervention in Libya

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain stumbled during an interview when asked whether he supported President Barack Obama's foreign policy in Libya.

The Georgia businessman told the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday that he did not agree with Obama's handing of the revolt against longtime Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who was killed last month.

Cain then shifted uncomfortably in his chair, crossed his legs and said, "I got to go back, see, got all this stuff twirling around in my head."

The candidate then said he would have done a better job determining the nature of the opposition to Gadhafi. He said he would have supported many of the steps taken to stop the killing and might have ultimately taken similar actions as Obama.
