Feingold Statement on President Obama Accepting the Resignation of General Stanley McChrystal
WASHINGTON - June 23 - “The comments of General McChrystal
and his aides were very troubling, and the president’s decision to
accept his resignation is appropriate. But I continue to have strong
concerns about our misguided policy in Afghanistan. The massive,
open-ended military operation in Afghanistan will cost a hundred billion
dollars this year with no end in sight. Meanwhile, al Qaeda continues
to operate and recruit around the world. After nine years, it is time
to give the American people, as well as the people of Afghanistan, a
timetable to end this war so our nation is better able to focus on the
global threat posed by al Qaeda and its affiliates.”
Senator Feingold is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee.
