ON THEIR SUPPORT FOR US TROOPS:

NATALIE MAINES: ...we support the troops. We support the troops l00 percent. We have said that from day one. People have quoted we don't support the troops, which is the opposite of anything we have ever said. There is not a correlation between not wanting a war and not supporting the troops who are doing their job...

EMILY ROBISON: Martie and I have family in the military. But it's nothing more than that we want to do than have our troops be safe, successful...you know we're very patriotic...

DIANE SAWYER: ...But there are those who say to support them is to understand how much they believe in what they're doing.  And it does matter to them that you believe in what they're putting their lives on the line for.

MAINES: ...as passionate as they are about their cause, I love that about them, but accept that I am passionate about mine as well...

 

MAINES ON WHETHER SHE IS TRULY SORRY:

MAINES: ...I think it came down to it was ... that it was in a foreign country and it was that it was ...an off-the-cuff statement...And I think the way I said it was disrespectful.  The wording I used, the way I said it, that was disrespectful...I feel regret for, you know, the choice of words.  Or the non-choice of words...Am I sorry that I asked questions and that I don't just follow?  No.... 

ROBISON: ...That's what I was going to say, are we in an atmosphere where that's allowed anymore?  You're either with us or you're against us?
