Chris van Hollen (D-MD) on Republicans pressuring Pres. Obama to make a decision about whether to send 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan:
… Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), a member of the House leadership team, on Monday said there is no reason to rush a decision.
“We’ve been in Afghanistan for eight years. We can take a little more time,” Van Hollen said. “It’s more important to get it right.”
Finally! Someone in Congress stands up to this offensive notion that a few weeks is too long to take to decide if we should escalate a war we’ve been in for the former President’s entire term in office!
