Latta Statement On President's Afghanistan Remarks


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) made the following statement after President Obama's speech at West Point this evening.

"Now more than ever, our Armed Forces who keep our nation safe need the full support of Congress and the American people. President Obama's speech tonight outlined a much-needed troop increase in Afghanistan to continue to root out terrorists and train Afghan troops and security forces. This training is crucial, as these troops and forces will eventually succeed United States and Allied forces in keeping Afghanistan safe and prevent the country and region from harboring terrorist organizations."

"Even with increased troop numbers, questions still linger on whether or not General McChrystal will be provided the resources to accomplish the mission. It is my firm belief that our commanders on the ground have the best insight as to what they need to win the war on terror and it is the responsibility the President and Congress to heed that call and provide those resources."
