Rep. Dicks Reacts to Afghan Leader's Comments

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

"When Afghan President Hamid Karzai made the incongruous statement recently that Afghanistan would support Pakistan in a war against the United States, he was dismissing the enormous commitment the U.S. has made to restore democratic rule to his nation.

"Without the assistance of the United States, $468 billion from the United States Treasury and the supreme sacrifice of 1,820 American soldiers who have died during Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan would still be ruled by a gang of Taliban thugs with few individual liberties and no popularly-elected leaders.

"The sentiments expressed by President Karzai underscore the need for the United States to re-evaluate the mission as well as the schedule for re-deploying our troops as the Karzai government assumes its appropriate responsibility to provide for the safety and security of the Afghan people."
