Cain vows clear foreign policy after Libya lapse

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is trying to show that he understands national security and foreign policy issues, a day after stumbling when asked about Libya.

Cain told more than 200 people in northeastern Iowa on Tuesday that the U.S. needs to clarify its relationships with friends and enemies around the world and make sure to stand with its friends.

On Monday, Cain momentarily lost his footing in a videotaped interview with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He struggled to answer when asked whether he supported President Barack Obama's handling of the crisis in Libya.

Cain's trip to Iowa was just his second in three months. It's also his first visit since allegations that he sexually harassed women more than a decade ago came to light.
