WASHINGTON -Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee made the following comment on President Trump's strategy for Afghanistan.

“I support President Trump renewing America’s commitment to defend our interests in Afghanistan.  He has set out a reasonable way ahead that begins with being honest about the requirements needed to win, and the challenges in the region. He is clear-eyed about the complexities of the mission and is giving our Commanders the resources they need to be successful.  Now it is time for Congress to step up and provide timely and adequate funding for this vital mission.”
