Washington, D.C. --- U.S. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) today responded to the release of the Iraq Study Group’s recommendations.
Hunter’s statement follows:
“The President has now received the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group. He also has the recommendations he received from the Department of Defense and the input of other executive branch departments, as well as the counsel of the Secretary of Defense-designee, as tools.
“The Congress and the nation should now stand behind the President as he evaluates our foreign and defense policy.
“American policy should flow from our shores with one voice.
“At this point, the stand up of the Iraqi Forces is the pre-eminent goal of all parties. American unity on Iraq is critical and we should move forward together.”
