As the war on terror rages on, the world is more dangerous than ever. There are groups all over the world who wish to destroy the freedoms we enjoy and the values that make America great. As a result we must continue to be an example to other countries of freedom and prosperity. In order to do this, we must make sure that our commanders on the ground are not hindered from achieving our objective by arbitrary timelines.
I am fully committed to ensuring that our military personnel receive the best equipment, training and support we can give them. Since our nation's inception, these brave Americans have made great sacrifices for the cause of liberty and they deserve our utmost respect and gratitude.
