DeMint Statement on President Obama's Afghanistan Strategy

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC



Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) made the following statement after President Obama announced he will authorize sending a surge of U.S. troops to Afghanistan:

"We must win the War on Terror to prevent future attacks like the ones on September 11th. President Obama is our commander-in-chief and I hope his new plan will achieve victory in Afghanistan. I'm concerned by the months of delay and the message it has sent to our enemies about our commitment to win this fight. However, I'm going to do everything I can in the Senate to ensure our troops are supported with everything they need to be successful defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban and return home with honor."?
