Campaign Website Statements

Iraq and Afghanistan:

I support the Status of Forces Agreement negotiated by President Bush and believe that we should continue to make an orderly drawdown of forces there, consistent with maintaining the security gains that have been achieved in that country. I also support the recommendations of General McChrystal in Afghanistan and would support the additional troops he needs there to provide security and defeat the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
