President Obama's stark rebuttal of the Bush Doctrine has kept the United States on the offensive in the War on Terrorism, while making our country safer. His gutsy decision-making and the hard work of our armed forces and intelligence services brought Osama Bin Laden to justice. Additionally, President Obama has kept his promise to bring American combat troops home from Iraq - ending a near decade-long occupation. Over ten years after the 9/11 attacks, American troops are still engaged in fierce combat in Afghanistan. While leaving a stable and secure country behind is in the best interest of our country and the entire region, John believes that Congress must continue to work with President Obama to wind down the war. John has been a strong supporter of bringing our troops home and he is glad that President Obama has kept this promise. As John has said numerous times, Israel remains the U.S.'s strongest ally in the Middle East. He supports protecting security through the use of sanctions on Iran and Syria while working with our international partners towards peace in the region.
