Boehner Warns Against Arbitrary Deadlines in Afghanistan

‘Make no mistake: more tough decisions will be here soon’

“Lastly, it was an honor to have President Ghani from Afghanistan here in the Congress this week. His message of peace, and his tributes to the service and sacrifice of our brave Americans was powerful. And I was particularly struck about his statement that three million Afghan girls are now in school – compared with none before September 11, 2001. This is something to be proud of, and reminds us that arbitrary political deadlines should never be put ahead of ensuring this success that we’ve worked so hard to achieve. We’ll review closely the specifics of President Obama’s troop level announcement for the remainder of 2015.  But make no mistake: more tough decisions will be here soon.”
