Rep. Schiff released the following statement on the death of former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani:

"The death of former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani, who was appointed last year to head a commission trying to negotiate with the Taliban, is a sad and tragic blow to the Afghan government's efforts to bring insurgents into the political fold. It is deeply disturbing that the man who killed Rabbani was brought to his home under the pretext of peace talks, instead hid explosives in his turban. Efforts at reconciliation will continue, as they must, since at the end of the day there can be no military solution to this decade-long conflict."
