Isakson Statement on Obama's Strategy for Afghanistan

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today issued the following statement in reaction to President Obama's speech outlining the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan:

"I am glad the President has finally outlined his strategy regarding the war in Afghanistan, and I am glad he will supply General McChrystal with a majority of the troops he wanted. We need to give our commanders in the field the manpower they need to get the job done.

"We also must continue to put pressure on the Karzai government to end corruption and drug-trafficking.

"I am extremely concerned by the President's proposal to set an arbitrary timeline for withdrawal because I think that sends the exact wrong signal to the enemy. We should pursue this mission to a successful conclusion and then bring our troops home."
