Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) issued the following statement after yesterday's discussion between President Obama and President Karzai regarding the role of American forces in Afghanistan going forward:
"After nearly 13 years of brave service and sacrifice of the American armed forces, yesterday's discussion between President Obama and President Karzai reaffirmed the Afghan government's complete disregard and disrespect for the U.S. soldiers who have made that sacrifice.
"President Obama should take the security agreement off the table and begin the responsible withdrawal our troops. Don't wait until the end of 2014. Our troops have completed their mission with bravery and honor which has made our country more secure. We need to bring our troops home and leave the job of securing Afghanistan to the Afghans."
