LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Granger, Ind. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after President Trump’s address to the nation about the U.S. presence in Afghanistan.
Donnelly said, “Tonight the President laid out his vision for success in Afghanistan. I hope he now comes to Congress with a clear strategy and explains how the Administration plans to achieve that goal. The mission in Afghanistan should be based on conditions on the ground, where the Taliban and ISIS threaten the stability of the country and U.S. national security interests. It is critically important that Afghanistan never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists like those who planned the 9/11 attacks and those who wish to do our country and our allies harm.”
