“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set,” he said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.” Barack Obama, 7/2/08

F.Y.I. I checked an unedited copy of the video from the Obama campaign against an edited version put out by some non-Obama supporters just to make sure nothing was left out of context. As far as I could see, nothing was left out. What is even more puzzling is that this particular line was left out the transcript of this speech.

As for the video, try to scroll to minute 16:40. That is where he mentions the quote above.
