DeGette Statement on President Obama's Afghanistan Address to the Nation


Location: Unknown

"I commend President Obama for honoring his commitment to begin troop withdrawals from Afghanistan, but I urge him to provide his long-term strategy for total withdrawal as soon as possible. U.S. forces' elimination of Osama bin Laden and other top al-Qaeda leadership -- and the subsequent weakening of their organization in Afghanistan -- underscore how our mission in that country has shifted and how the time has come to bring our troops home."
