Clyburn Statement on President's Speech on Troop Withdrawals from Afghanistan

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today issued the following statement on President Obama's plan for troop withdrawals from Afghanistan:

"President Obama tonight delivered on his promise to begin responsibly drawing down our troops in Afghanistan. Eighteen months ago he launched a troop surge that has proven effective, and it is now time to gradually bring our soldiers back home and let the Afghan people take charge of their future course.

"Our military men and women and their families have paid a high price during this ten year war, and we commend their efforts and honor their sacrifices. It is my fervent hope that all America will soon have the joyous task of celebrating their service by welcoming our heroes home."
