OK, over at the White House’s official transcript it appears that the “misstatement” was spoken as written:
Third, this bill meets our commitment to America’s Armed Forces by preparing them to meet the threats of tomorrow. Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we. We must never stop thinking about how best to defend our country when we all must always be forward-thinking.
Who wants to bet on when the draft will be retroactively edited to say something that makes more sense?
