Statement of Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin On the Announced Troop Surge in Afghanistan
WASHINGTON - The following statement can be attributed to Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI):
“In 2001, I voted to authorize the use of force to bring to
justice those responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
I believe our current actions in Afghanistan and President
Obama’s proposal for moving forward bear little resemblance to that
original, narrowly-focused mission.
I cannot endorse a military surge in Afghanistan
It’s time for our troops to come home.”
