Boxer Statement on President Obama's Speech on Afghanistan  

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Boxer (D-CA) issued the following statement after President Obama’s speech tonight on Afghanistan:

“I support the President’s mission and exit strategy for Afghanistan, but I do not support adding more troops because there are now 200,000 American, NATO and Afghan forces fighting roughly 20,000 Taliban and less than 100 al Qaeda.”
