Montana's Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today issued the following statement regarding the leadership changes for the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

"As Commander-in-Chief, the president has the authority to make changes in command. No matter who is in charge on the ground, the mission in Afghanistan must continue to focus on winning the war and bringing our troops home. I have full faith that our brave men and women in uniform will succeed in the liberation of Afghanistan. It's now time for Congress to do its job and pass the overdue troop-funding bill providing our men and women in uniform with the necessary tools and resources they need."
