Inhofe, R-Tulsa, also criticized the president for suggesting that torture was conducted at the military prison in Guantanamo, saying, "There has never been a documented case of torture at Guantanamo." "I just don't know whose side he's on,'' Inhofe said of the president. Rep. Mary Fallin, R-Oklahoma City, said Obama "needs to take a stronger stance against regimes which threaten international peace, sponsor terrorism, brutalize their own citizens and threaten the existence of other nations with the pursuit of weapons of mass destruction." And Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Cheyenne, said, "When the United States promotes peace around the world, it ensures our own security -- militarily, culturally and economically. "We should not, however, support any actions or offer any aid to those countries which directly or indirectly support groups that promote the destruction of our way of life. The president has offered the Muslim world an open hand, but we must keep in mind that there are those few who would use his offer against him."
