Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today in response to President Obama's proposed plan to drawdown U.S. Forces in Afghanistan.
"Success in stabilizing Afghanistan is crucial to our national security. I would like to bring our troops home as much as anyone, but we must do it the right way. The sacrifices our brave men and women in uniform have made in Afghanistan have helped bring greater stability there, and must not be jeopardized by any withdrawal plan based on political expediency and not the real-world decisions of our commanders on the ground."
