Washington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today released the following statement after an announcement that the Obama administration will support a plan to keep 9,800 troops stationed in Afghanistan beyond the end of the year.
“Thousands of our brave severicemembers have sacrificed their lives in Afghanistan, and tens of thousands more have sustained serious injury. We should be bringing all of our troops home, not continuing to put nearly 10,000 of them in harm’s way halfway around the world. It’s long-past time the Afghan people were in control of their own future.”###
