Louisiana US Senator Comments On President Obama’s Afghanistan Speech
U.S. Sen. David Vitter today made the following statement after President Obama’s address on the future of U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan:
“I’m looking at the details of this plan carefully,” said Vitter. “Of course we all want all of our troops home as soon as possible. I just hope the president is listening to our military leaders so we don’t lose the real gains we’ve fought so hard for. And I hope he avoids pre-announced, rigid timelines that just aid and embolden the enemy.”
Vitter is a member of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee.
