Congressman Leonard Boswell (IA-3) today released the following statement on the President's announcement of total troop withdrawal from Iraq:
"This announcement is welcomed news. Our troops have served honorably and heroically over these years at great cost of lives, however there is little more to be gained by their presence in Iraq. It is time for the Iraqi people to hold each other accountable for their future and success. We must now work towards this end in Afghanistan as soon as possible."
