Boehner Statement on the President’s Decision to Send Additional Troops to Afghanistan

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement last night regarding the decision by President Obama to send additional troops to Afghanistan:

“I support the President’s decision to send additional troops to Afghanistan to help root out terrorism and stabilize the country on behalf of its people. Republicans agree that a strategic review of the current situation in Afghanistan is warranted, and we will work to ensure that our commanders on the ground have all the additional troops they have requested.

“Afghanistan represents a complex challenge, and it will take time to achieve real, sustained results there. Republicans are committed to supporting our men and women in uniform and giving them all the resources they need to succeed in their mission there.”
