National Security

I support ending the war in Afghanistan and bringing our troops home as soon as safely possible.

The goals of expelling al-Qaeda and overthrowing the Taliban were accomplished years ago. It took about a thousand Special Forces troops to overthrow the Taliban in 2001. Why do we need a hundred times that number now to keep them out?

Instead of spending billions on the other side of the world, we can spend that money here to rebuild America. We simply can no longer afford these wars. The American people are tired of wars that do not make us safer.
