Continued Heavy Commitment of U.S. Forces in Iraq Hampering Our Ability to Fight in Afghanistan

Press Release

Location: Washington D.C.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today on President Bush's announcement on troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan:

"After five and a half years of war, President Bush will leave office with nearly as many U.S. troops in Iraq as were there before the 'surge' began in January 2007. The continued heavy commitment of U.S. forces is hampering our ability to fight the real war against terrorism in Afghanistan, is hurting our military readiness, and is extending the strain of long deployments on our military families.

"The President is incapable of finding a way to make our troops the beneficiaries of whatever improvements there have been in security in Iraq."
